More Florida 1955, 1960, 1963-64

213 K Street  Lake Worth Florida was the address of the garage apartment which C J and Gladys Uible rented for the winter circa 1945-1965.  Marianne reports in driving by on March 15, 2011: It is painted "pink" with Aqua shutters and not in great condition. Ha. It was fun to see it again. Drove down the alley also.... memories of the black cadillac in the garage. Ha."

They rented this furnished apartment from the Linn Deckers, who were their friends as well as their landlord.  For at least one season they rented an apartment on the 2nd floor of the main house before moving to the garage apartment.

After 1965 they stayed with the Hortons instead of renting the apartment.  After CJ passed away in 1969, Gladys flew to Florida and in the 1980s flew on People Express, a no frills airline that operated from 1981-1987.

The paint was more subdued in the picture below taken by Roberta during the time she spent in Lake Worth during the late fall of 1963 when she attended seventh grade with Cris. Catherine also attended part of seventh grade in Florida in 1961 with Marianne and Serena went to sixth grade in the fall of 1966 at the school where Rob was a fifth grader.  Note the pull string on the porch light bulb, reachable from below.

There was a plethora of foliage around the house in front of the apartment. Below are two pictures taken on the grounds. Note Grandma's Christmas corsage.

From HH: It was big news when the Breakers Hotel raised the price of cake from 10 to 15¢. [In the 30s or 40s?] A gal that was a waitress there lived next door to the CJUs at the time.
