Street Portraiture: Faces of Kissimmee, #25

Due to today’s observance of the Memorial Day holiday here in the U.S.A., the door at 109 Broadway was one of the few I found open for business downtown. As I entered the front door, Mary Lee was approaching from the rear of the store. Along with her came a great smile and a cheerful greeting. Mary Lee quickly proved to be one of those people that are easy and fun to talk with.

Like myself, she is a rarity: she was born and raised here. She taught elementary school; her father taught high school shop. Today, you can find her at Echoes of Yesterday Antique Mall — along with a large variety of antiques, collectibles and pieces that are — as stated — “echoes of yesterday”. On this visit, I found a 1950’s Hohner harmonica and case exactly like the one I have that my dad used to play.

I already mentioned she has a great smile. Of course I asked if I could take her photo.
