My Father worked at this Walgreens for over 30 years, as a Fountain Manager.
When I was a kid you to watch the Orange Bowl Parade from the 3rd floor.
Still to this day, I still miss that parade.

You would be hard pressed to find anyone who DID NOT have a treasured visit to this store. It was so much fun! I'm loving these picture memories of the heart.

Sorry...I meant the Mayflower, not Mayfair.

In the 50's, I remember eating at the Walgreen's lunch counter many times on a trip downtown. If I wanted a little more upscale lunch, I'd walk down to the Mayfair Restaurant.

I remember first going here as a kid. I was very impressed. The higher floors had an oval balcony that overlooked the first floor. All very Art Deco in design. Last time I was downtown I think this building was an shoe store that had just closed. Hopefully someone will restore it to it's original look.
