I worked at that Grables from 66 to summer of 67. Grables had taken over the other stores and add a parking lot on the side. Grables had seven to nine markets in the Miami area. All the bakery goods came from downtown daily. After the old man died mismanagement reduced it to two by December of 66. The one on Trail and the main store downtown right across from the Royal Castle. By the summer of 67 I worked at the remaining store downtown. There is a photo that shows up now and then of a metro bus in front of the Royal Castle. The other building across the street is Grables.

Every Sunday, we would stop on our way home and buy a Devils food cake from was the best...with ice cold milk...

why do all the natives leave? I lived in the area, and I had to leave because nothing was happening for me. If I was a native, I would have stayed.

My dad used to work part-time up at Doyle's TV Repair Shop in the mid-60's. That area was in our "neck-of-the-woods," too. Sad to hear that the strip was demolished. Smaller "mom & pop" shops are pretty much gone now, taken over by HUGE companies out for money only...

This strip was literally just demolished today (2/25/08). Drove by it on the way home.

There is a Pinch-A-Penny that takes up this entire strip now. I grew up in this neighborhood from the late '70's dad still lives in the same house (one of the few natives that didn't leave).
