Actually, the paint can is still there.

I remember the giant paint can well! I was fascinated by it as a kid in the '70s and '80s.

At the time of this photo, the adjacent storefront with the "tipping" paint can is O-Gee Paint which was owned by Al Duzic.

I grew up on the NW corner of 68 Ave and 39 Terr. My friends and I used to walk to this store and the others in the area.

We used to go into this hardware store and buy a coke when we had a dime. It was one of those old coke machines that you opened up and pulled the bottle out (from the vertical "stack".)

There was a Dairy Queen on the same side of Bird just a couple of blocks down the way the picture is facing but I'm not sure when that opened. Being born in '64, I wasn't old enough to get out and explore until the early '70(s).

The spilling paint can on the roof was there up until a couple of years ago. I am a 3rd generation miamian! My grandmother used to go to Sid's piano bar which was just east of here (Ludlam)
