Thank you to Stan Meade for contributing this great old image and to Jeff Levine for providing the exact location on Honey Hill Road (NW 199th Street) in Dade County. The name of the business is not listed in a 1956 telephone directory (thank you Ellie Wheeler for looking!).

Jeff, thank you for the history of the prints and your assistance in providing locations for various photos.

Gene, thank you for your comments. I've added NW 2nd Avenue to the description which I should have done in the beginning.

Don--I bought my 'dream house' December, 1957, right down this street. 420 N W 199th Street.
'441' was also called northwest 2nd Avenue---

Yes, this was the NW corner of NW 199th Street and 441.

In later years this building was a Sub Center location. The photo was taken by the late Ernie Skog and was a print that I had made out of my personal photo negative collection (which is now part of the Seth and Myrna Bramson Collection).

A number of years ago, I gave a stack of prints to my buddy Darion Avery (of Avery Glass; now retired and living in North Carolina).

He lent the prints to a customer who "wanted to show them to someone" and that was the last that he saw of them.

Some time after that, Stan Meade found them for sale at a flea market, so (at least) they ended up in good hands.

All of the Stan Meade supplied prints on this site were taken by Ernie Skog, unless I've noted them as a work of the late Robert L. Kelley or otherwise.

Thank you guest. What I'm looking for is the north-south avenue that intersects with Honeyhill Road or Drive which runs east-west just south of the county border. As I stated, I suspect that it was in the northeast section and not the northwest section because the northeast section was more developed at the time of the photo. Honeyhill Road still exists on street signs and on maps.

Honey Hill Drive was also the name of 199th street back in the 1960s (and prior). There was a barber shop, a carpet store, various other stores, a Li'l General convenience store. Perhaps this was in that shopping area?
