1963 - US1 looking north just south of SW 104 Street, Miami, Florida

US1 and SW 104 Street, Miami, Florida


This shot was taken in conjunction with zoning approval for a Hot Shoppes at the intersection of SW 104th Street. The building just to the left of the center was the property related to the future Hot Shoppes.

My mom drove me down US 1 probably about this far when I was about 7 (maybe 1962-4?) to visit a lady selling parakeets. This is the vista that impressed itself on me, it seemed dry and empty compared to coconut grove. And of course, those were the cars. My mother told me the lady had cancer, and I felt badly for her and a little scared. I can't remember if we bought the parakeet, but I think we did.

The railroad tracks are gone replaced by a busway/emergency road.Looking to the north now is tall buildings in front of Dadeland mall and behind Shortys. I forgot that it looked like this back then.
