More Vanquished Icons

      Economic turmoil, developer’s bulldozers and changing tastes may have devoured many of the iconic brands long intertwined in our lives. But not the memories.     

      Self-described “old timer” (I wonder what that makes me.) writes:

      “Your column this morning touched a nerve and brought back memories. The disappearing brands of just South Florida. Do you remember The Eagle Army & Navy, the Royal Castle (I think they were related) and the bread bakery in South Miami that moved to the Palmetto and now is gone by the wayside. Richards Department Store, Jeffersons, I helped open the Burdines at
Westland Mall.”
