The "old days"
I took them to the side of Mayfair where the Burdines sign is still up. They weren't too sure what Burdines was. It's interesting how everyone's "old days" are different. When I mentioned Ensign Bitters and the old Winn-Dixie at Virginia and Grand and the gas station across the street from that and Oak Feed, etc. they were flabbergasted.
They loved this old Burdines sign at Mayfair and wondered how long it would remain with the destructive developers enveloping Coconut Grove. "Burdines at Mayfair Lane," it sounds so quaint.
I guess in 20 years or so, today will be the "old days" that others loved.
