The "School on the Hill" in West Palm Beach, FL
There was a person that sold the Palm Beach Post every day during the winter. He wasn't feeble, but did suffer from a lung disease. (Name-Type Unknown in those days. TB most likely)..
Morrison's served good food at a good price. This was evident by the long lines that sometimes reached around the block.
You got a memory like a trap! Did you really go to West Side Baptist?

Ah yes, I remember him well!! I was in competition with him..........I sold papers on the street from late 1947 to about 1950 or '51. I was peddlin' the Palm Beach Times. Made about $4.oo a week doing this after school. When the late aftenoon edition of Miami Daily Newspaper came out, it was called the Blue Streak. He would then yell BAALUUe STREAK!!!! I think you could hear him all the way over to Datura St. I always felt pity for him. He usually stood there and stared at the sidewalk when he wasn't yelling.
Other street vendors of that same era included Jimmy Williams , Tommy & Jesse Corbett, and Richard Welch(class of '53).
Dick Welch tried to sell me the "rights" to sell my papers in the Harvey Bldg. for $5.00. Even as a 10 year-old, I sensed something shady about the deal

The Surf was on Datura St between Dixie and Olive. My mother took me to see the movie "South Pacific" there. Still love that music. I don't remember one west of Burdine's. When i was in grade school, i remember going to the Carefree for serials and cartoons.
