“The Leo Fitzpatrick Building on 515 Laura Street.  This is where the Ivey’s building is today.  Fitzpatrick Florist’s became famous here.”  LS

Leo Fitzpatrick Florist was one of the big players in Jacksonville’s flower business until the mid 1950’s when the business was bought in 1956 by competitor Robert Kuhn who founded Kuhn Flowers in 1947. I could not find the date when the building was demolished but after a search of the city directories, Fitzpatrick Florist was listed at this address until 1957. From 1958 to 1961 the property address was listed as vacant and starting 1962, 501 to 523 Laura Street was listed as under construction. Starting 1963 the address was listed as the side of Ivey’s.
