Prices-Out of control

My old home 298 So. Coconut lane
Palm Island. You could have knocked me over with a feather. On the market for
$ FIVE MILLION????????????

This house was built 1924 and owned by Silver Dollar Jake. When we bought we paid $28,000 we spent about $10,000 and lots of labor.

 The price today is 5 million.
How can that be? the sq. ft is the same,
the dock is the same, the lot can't have changed. OK Taxes? (2014)--$41,460
Holly cow!! That's more money than we bought it for. Where's the end?
So they added 3 columns
and a roof two french doors. a bird bath

The side stairs on left are missing.
They went to the Main Entry hall with double doors, over looking the Ship Channel.
The Spiral stairs out back have changed,
not as pretty.

Im just here for the rest,” Al Capone told authorities in 1928. The Chicago bootlegger had just bought a 36,000-square-foot, Art Deco waterfront house at 93 Palm Avenue on Miami Beach from a member of the Busch beer family (the house sold for $7.4 million in 2013).  Scarface’s reputation preceded him.

Elegante Fans

This Fan is from Wiki

Isn't it beautiful.

Elizabeth and fan

Then Came the Feather Fans.

 louvre Museums

This makes me remember the Fan collection I had collected all over the world, then my home was burnt to the ground.
I will never forget  Hurricane Andrew. I was so alone and devastated I went to a famous Charity group, they were not interested in me. Only Famous Football Players get help.
Then the Jerry Lewis (theft) then the outrageous Charity balls that do nothing for the people in trouble. I sound sour, well I am.

Her real name was Hattie Helen Gould Beck,
 Mother a school teacher and Father a West Pt. Grad, retired a Colonel.
She introduced the Ostrich Feathers. SALLY RAND

Gypsy Rose Lee ( Rose Louise Hovick) Sister was June Havock Actress
