1966 - Hurricane damage at the Mister Donut on Palm Springs Mile

700 block on the south side of W. 49 Street, Hialeah, Florida view map

Thank you to Bill Avery for contributing this great old image. I loved this Mr. Donut dearly from 1963 through 1965 because I had an early morning Herald route and we folded our newspapers most of that time at the nearby Thom McAn store at W. 49th and 8th Avenue. This Mr. Donut had their own bakery room and the franchise owner or manager would sell us a dozen warm freshly baked donuts for some ridiculously low price like a quarter or something. I only ate two, usually their glazed chocolate cake donuts and my family and the neighbors got the balance of the box. The Palm Springs Mile Publix Supermarket is visible in the background, along with the "Z" in the Zayre store just to the west. Mr. Donut was just to the west of Palm Springs Lanes, a long-time popular bowling center serving most of Hialeah and owned by the Facente family.

Harriet, from what I've read about Gary Snow's comments, their first store was on Palm Avenue just south of Municipal Auditorium Then they moved to the Catalina Shopping Center on Palm between 53rd and 55th.
