“1952. A street scene on Bay Street between Laura and Hogan. The Democrats were running Stevenson and Sparkman. You are looking West Northwest. Note the Earle, Mayflower and Seminole Hotels. The Casino theater at that time was nine cents. Some difference in it today.” LS
I like the way the Democrat Headquarters on 124 W. Bay Street was tucked between the Thom McAn Shoe Store and Andy’s Billiards. Adlai Stevenson was the Democratic presidential candidate, running against Republican candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower who won in a landslide ending 20 years of a Democratic leadership in the White House. Eisenhower’s running mate was Richard Nixon.
