Late 1950's From an old postcard

Late 1950's - east end of Jordan Marsh on NE 15th Street looking west toward Biscayne Boulevard

NE 15th Street at Bayshore Boulevard

There used to be a swimming pool on this east end of the building between JM and the east parking lot and my wife always thought it was an odd location for the pool. She says that it had a silver (aluminum?) fence around it to keep people out. She remembers several swimware fashion shows around the pool in the 1960's. Her best friend Ouida Ingram served on Jordan Marsh's Teen Board in 1969 through 1971 and my wife would accompany her to JM every Saturday so Ouida could do her Teen Board duties. She believes that the pool lasted until the huge Omni garage entrance ramp was built just east of the JM building in the mid to late 1970's.

Again, this is the back of the Jordan Marsh store looking west from 15th St & Bayshore Drive. Biscayne Boulevard is at the far end from this side of the building.

My mother worked at that JM in the 60s. We used to visit the Omni Mall many years afterwards, but sadly JM was long-gone by then (1990s).

My mother worked as a waitress in the Gulfstream Room for at least 15 years. Occasionally, she would bring home a Boston cream pie or she would stop at Grables Bakery for some glazed donuts. She also used to work at the Mayflower Restaurant as a waitress. I believe they sold Dunkin Donuts there. Those were the days.

Does anyone remember the balloon seller who worked from the sidewalk in the foreground of this picture?

I still have my favorite two stuffed dogs that I bought there just after the store opened, when I was in high school MHS '60.
