This matchbook was from the Pier Deck Bar, located at 16701 Collins Avenue. 

The Sunny Isles Resort Motel, formerly located at 16525 Collins Avenue, provided very affordable rates in 1958!

St. Claires Restaurant was located in the shopping plaza at NE 127 Street and Biscayne Boulevard.  This photo, taken in the 1950s, shows both the interior and exterior.  As of early 2007, the building was operating as a gym called "US1 Fitness."  However, it is soon scheduled for demolition as part of Publix' expansion.

There was Publix's and on the left was Bell's and left of that was Woolworths and on the Corner was Claires. then the Alley way to the North Miami Hospital and then the S&H Greenstamp Store. 30 years ago I cashed a two party check at the Publix, try that today.
