My father was the manager of this store in the late '50s through the middle '60s. A great time in Miami.

I bought my first set of tires in 1956 for my 1946 Mercury convertible when I went to Miami Jackson High school.

The building extension on the left was used in 1952 and 1953 to display the Allstate automobile that Sears was selling. It was a rebadged Henry J produced by Kaiser-Frazer in 1952 and Kaiser Willys in 1953. They also sold motor scooters from 1952-1967 that were produced by Piaggio (Vespa), Cushman, Puch and Gilera.

That circle in the front used to be a "turn-around" for the trolley.

Does anyone have any pictures of the trolley that went down Coral Way to the Gables?
