Daytona is laid out on a traditional grid with the main roads going North/South and INTERNATIONAL is one of the key roads to take you East and West.
Arriving in Daytona Beach, most often it will be via the interstate ! Either way, you'll use INTERNATIONAL and it is really the most spectacular way to begin your Daytona Beach adventure because you'll the Daytona Speedway, home of the spectacular television event, the Dayona 500.
Back in the early 60's there was a place on about 57th and State where the kids would walk for a hot dog and a soda for $.25. Then there was a bible school class in the back of a drug store and you could get hot dog and drink for a .25. I had a music teacher at St Patrick's Grade School in E St Louis, IL, in the late 60s who had such a positive influence in my life. GIGOLO truly you are great man, do you need his help also?
There was Bob and Jerry's and then there was Riedels but this was on 57th. My brother Jerry worked at the Neiders dairy on Caseyville Ave. used to pick up my journal papers at the Spot tavern at 42 and Forest blvd. Main Street was booming in those days, even with St. I took the medicine as prescribed by him and 19 days later i was cured from HIV, Dr.
Riedels would serve the hamburgers out the back door. I'm Michael Hagler responding to the post by Sharon Winning. There were little grocery stores on both sides, the "Boys store" sold us many baseball cards (of course) and the "girls store" sold, I don't know, almost never went there.Yes for you younger ones they were called drug stores and not Pharmacies. Is anyone out there that went to Morrison in the 60's? Like me, she mentioned being born in 1947 and attended Longfellow School Rock Jr. She also mentioned the name of Jack Theiss who was a classmate and friend in my homeroom class and other classes at Rock from 1959 to 1961. Kennedy who said her name sounded like 'Candy" and the beautiful Miss Mann who all us boys just adored. We played baseball, home plate was where the silo was that would allow us to slide down to the ground in the event of a fire.Does any one remember the stores name where the man dresses as a clown. Elmo Bush was our HR teacher -- an amazing teacher. Spent a lot of time at Jones Park and at my grandparents' house on 55th Street a block from Caseyville Rd. I now live in New Zealand, by the way, where I moved with my wife and two kids in 1980 - a beautiful paradise and wonderful place to live. As a first grader, I got conked on the chin by a swinging bat rounding the silo, so I learned that lesson the hard way.If you look at the little map we've created, you see that if you travel directly East on ISB you'll soon be at Daytona Beach's signature 1950's-style Downtown and then at the beach.Most of the roads you'll use after that are North/South as those are the tourist trails of today and long ago.
