We used to go to bayfront park on the week ends to feed the pigeons and ride the jungle cruise boat.

Walking in Bayfront Park on Sunday afternoons was a great experience for my 9 yr. old brother (Mi Hi 1940) Bill Click and me. We heard speakers and music from the bandshell. We climbed the stone path to see the little fishpond, watched boats dock and viewed tourists with their catch. We even went on Old Ironsides once. It cost nothing and that is the amount of budget one had in the depression. Wonderful Isle of Dreams was the radio station (WIOD) and I recalled the tall building, the McAllister Hotel with folks in their rockers on the front porch. I even watched what they told us was the Orange Bowl football game in a sandlot right there on Biscayne Blvd. Seward touted his horoscopes just down the stree to the west.

No drink was ever so satisfying as the 5-cent pina colada that had a lady squeezing the pineapple and coconut together until it frothed in that big red goblet. You got a tiny bite of coconut to chew on. The Presbyterian Church was across the street by the popcorn stand. I recall a fine hotel with a circular drive just west of the juice stand.

I remember the death of the streetcar that cost just 7 cents to ride. They had a downtown funeral by the Olympia Theater.
