I believe the image was taken by Ernie Skog and it was part of a large collection bought by Mr. Stan Meade. I only have a small digital version which you see above. Perhaps someday a larger version of the photo will show up for sale on eBay in the Collectibles section for Hialeah and/or Miami where a lot of old photos are up for sale at any given time.

I have been searching for this image of McCorys for years. McCorys was like an extension of my home where I lived down the street. What was the store next to it? Is was a clothing store? Is a print of this photo for sale? I wish the block of stores were still around to go back and experience. Of course, it never is the same. But, it is memories that I hold dear.

So happy to find this photo! I lived less than 1/4 block away, on Eucalytus Drive, in a sweet little section called Deer Park. I walked to South Hialeah Elementary School, nearby, from 1954-1957. Then walked across Miami Springs bridge to attend M. S. Jr High, 1957-1960. Oh. so many memories!! Linda (Duckworth) Phillips

Judi, I think the Reeves Boy, I was friends with at Hialeah Elementary School with, was Ernie Reeves . He lived on East 12th Street, just off of East 4th Avenue.

My mom sure liked this store, because we used to take the bus down to Hialeah Drive from E. 28th Street to shop there. Remember Coast Cities Coaches?

Yes!!! They did have a luncheonette. My Aunts mother worked there way back in the early 50's. She was a very dear lady with a strong British accent. Maude was her name. I also loved going up the stairs that were in the middle of the store with the stair rail that kind of wrapped around at the bottom. I thought I was so cool since nothing else there had stairs. I used to get in trouble for playing on them!

I loved this store and I downloaded this picture from ebay a few years ago when someone was selling the same one. My favorite memory of this store was each year just before leaving for our lengthy 5 to 7 week drives in our bread truck converted into a family camper (now called RV), my mother would take me to this store so I could but three or four Budgie toy cars. They were the same size as Matchbox, but cheaper to buy and cheaper in quality (no interiors and no clear plastic window inserts, etc.). I would leave my treasured Matchbox collection home in Hialeah and take the cheap ones with me and play with them all summer. Where ever we were on the last night, I would leave them neatly on the campsite picnic table so hopefully some other kid could come along and find them as a treasure and enjoy them. I still have one "Budgie" brand orange Austin Countryman Station Wagon (same size as a Matchbox) carefully tucked away in my collection. Each time see it I fondly remember our long vacations and...McCrory's on Hialeah Drive.

Judi I think I remember a family that lived on 9th lane on the n. e. corner near 7th st. I think their name was Reeves and I beleive the father was Ernie Reeves and he drove a stock car at Hialeah and Palmetto. I remembered the name because I found his wallet out by the road one day around 1964 we were walking form Flamingo Plaza. Do you remember a girl named Donna Wood who lived on the N.W. corner of 5th st. and 9th lane she was a friend of my older sister she would be about 64 now, and did you know a girl named Jan who still lives on 5th st. between lejune and 9th ave. she would about 54 now and I see her very often , she was actually born in that house ,I see her often around that area and talk to her she is the closest original Hialean that I know of , I live 5 blocks south on Hialeah Drive. Good Bye Carey

Don Boyd, Thanks, For Posting This Picture. It sure Brings Backs Lots of Memories. I was in That McCrory's Store, a Million time times, and I Had Banana Splits, and BLT Sandwiches, ect., at The Lunch Counter - Luncheonette, and it was Real Good !!!!! I Loved to Go in there, and Browse Around, and I Always Found Bargain 1 Dollar Cook Books, and other Bargain Treasures !!!!! And in The 70's, and 80's, My Wife, worked at The Old Hialeah Drive Publix, across The Street, and She Went to Mc Crory's, all The Time For Lunch, at The Luncheonette, and To Buy Things. It was a Good Store, and was Very Popular. Best Regards , Don. Robbin.

Most five and dime stores back then had a luncheonette area. While I've been in this store I can't remember eating there so someone who lived closer will have to answer up.

Didn't they have a dinette area in there too? I grew up on E. 5th ST and 9th Lane. Does anyone remember the Reeves boys?
