And here is the transformation. Gone is the leather hoodlum motorcycle jacket. This picture was taken a couple of years after the hoodlum picture shortly after I arrived in Miami, Florida. This picture was taken at the Miami zoo when it was just a small zoo with an admission of 10 cents. Boy, we won’t ever see those prices ever again. When you arrived at the zoo, you just put a dime into the slot of a turnstile and you were on your way into the zoo. So here I have a dress shirt on with a sweater over it, dress slacks, penny loafers and white bobby sox. I guess that I just couldn’t get more preppy than that. They were good times and I have fond memories of them. The peacocks just loved graham crackers and the birds roamed freely everywhere begging handouts from the visitors. Have a good day. Lew

Ten cents is an awesome price to pay. It sounds like it was back in the day when you had a gas attendant check under your hood,checked your tire pressure, filled your gas tank and cleaned your windshield. He might even change out your windshield wipers if they needed to be changed. I look at the picture and it just doesn't seem that long ago. Thanks for sharing your memories with us the public.
