Aunt Stelle's Sno Cone

Probably the best place in Oak Cliff to get a Sno Cone. Apparently they're as good now as they were when I was a kid.  The place opened in 1962, and I remember Aunt Stelle's had an ad in our school yearbook about every year. As I was looking for articles about Aunt Stelle's, I found a lot of ads for "Snow Cone Machines", mostly from the 1950s. Apparently none of them could compete with hand-shaved ice and made from scratch syrups because Aunt Stelle's is still here and "snow cone machines" are not.
