Old Northeast in St. Petersburg, FL

When I was just two years old, my parents loaded up the family and  all of our belongings and moved to Florida!  

They had no specific plans, no place to live yet, and just a few job prospects... what they hoped to find was a lot of opportunity!  It turned out to be even better than they could've ever imagined!  

This is our first house...they rented it while they learned "the lay of the land."  Without their knowledge (just good instincts) Old Northeast, as it was known, with its narrow brick streets,  estate homes and close to the waterfront, was the place to be.   This house was built in 1920 and architecturally had Spanish influence with it's stucco walls, tile roof and window awnings.  We had just two bedrooms for a family of five, so the sunporch off of the dining room was converted to be my bedroom!
