VIDEO: Bob Jo's Frozen Custard is a Downriver icon celebrating 75 years

You can't get closer to the taste of summer than a frozen custard from Bob-Jo's, according to the Downriver faithful.

Bob-Jo's has been open for 77 years.

It was founded in 1947. The building was moved just down the street in 1955.

"Generations of people. I mean, I'm not really sure how you would describe a generation but people come in from Florida and Arizona after they've been there for the winter. This is the first place they come," said co-owner Rob McGregor.

Photojournalist John Ciolino takes you inside the spot that means so much for so many people.
