Hey.....if you sat out in the sun for 50 years you would not look so great either!(Poster board or otherwise.)
I hope she used that Coppertone and is not seeing a Dermatologist on a regular basis now!

I'm so happy to hear it's being refurbished and replaced. It IS a landmark and one of the positive pieces that people relate to S. FLA.

I remember when the sign first went up and am also glad it's being refurbished, instead of just tearing it down.

I remember that sign and also the billborad sign by the cloverleaf in the 60' and 70's. Brings back a lot of memories when the beaches were clean and not overcrowded.
My mom once told me that my chilhood baby sitter was the model for the little girl in the drawing when she was little. She was real cute when she was a teenage babysitter. Anyways I think mom was wrong now that I read the column. oh well.

I remeber visiting my grandparents in Florida in the 60's and 70's and I loved the Coppertone girl and dog, my mom said I looked alot like that when I was small. It brings back great memories of my Grandparents who are both gone now. We loved spending time at the beach and going to lums for lunch. I really miss that.

Another sign of the times. There isn't a single issue in the news that some bigoted moron like you won't link to the immigrant issue.

Enough already! Let the rest of us enjoy the article.

We can remember these ads from the mid 1950's in Lake Worth.

I remember the one that was at the 163rd St Interchange in Northern Dade that actually worked. Back in the 70s when I was a kid, it was my favorite!!
