Nostalgia time

I was born and raised in West Palm Beach and lived there until 1997. A couple of years ago I went back for a visit, and could not believe how much things have changed. Some of it sad, but mostly good, and it got me thinking about things that seemed to be always there, but are not anymore. Below are some of the things I miss. Please feel free to add to the list.

Burdines downtown with it's lunch counter

The Hut

Expos baseball at the municipal stadium

Howard Johnson's restaurant

The Palm Beach Pier

The red and white wooden air traffic control tower

The chapel at Morrison Field

Palm Coast Plaza

The Bazaar

Topfer's Bar-B-Que

Royal Castle

The Pennsylvania Hotel

The Paramount Theater in Palm Beach

S&S Cafeteria

The Carefree Theater


The Polo Grounds on Congress Avenue

OK, your turn.....
