One thought on “Congratulations to Grand Central District in St. Petersburg!

  1. I was Born in St Petersburg 1956. Grandparents Mr and Mrs A. O. Grinaker built there home there in 1935. He came to St Pete to work building the Nurses Home at Bay Pines. Pops as I called him took me fishing as a child every Sat at Pass-A-Grille. I miss my Grandparent, I have such rich memories of them. I spent my early life’s recreation fishing all over. I remember all the historic places of that time period. Corey Causeway and its timber road. How it would go bump bump all the way cross. O’Neill’s Boat Basin and Grant O’Neil who taught me to throw a cast net. Jimmy Kelly who was a shrimper there. Those times are long gone
