1950's - Miami Jai Alai Fronton on NW 36 Street, Miami

NW 36th Street, Miami, Florida

Thank you to Daniel Worth for contributing this image. Note the huge air raid sirens on top of the right tower, which were exercised every Saturday at noon or 1pm as I recall. Spaced all over the county they could be heard by virtually all of the residents in the county.

other sizes: small medium original auto

Saw lots of concerts here in the early 70's including Hendrix (I got to shake his hand), Allman Brothers, Spirit, Ted Nugent, Blues Image, etc.

Chula and rebote would not be in my vocabulary were it not for many great times trying the perfectas here.
