Well, I've grown with Orlando. When I came here I came about the same time Martin came, now Lockheed Martin. I knew of the Martin Company because of being in the Washington area. They're over in Baltimore and so, they discovered Orlando about the same time I did. And Orlando, back in those days, the stores used to close at noon on Wednesdays.

My name is Jerry Chicone and actually I've carried a junior on my name because my dad had the same name and I was born here in Orlando in the only hospital that was in Orange County and it was called Orange General Hospital. And it wasn't until the second World War that it was changed to Orange Memorial Hospital to honor the veterans. And in those days it was not on Orange Avenue.

Pete C. Barr. I was born in Washington, D.C.. on the last day of January, 1934. My family was living in northern Virginia at the time and my father was in Maryland. He had gone to George Washington Medical School and had interned at a City Hospital in Washington which was over in the northeast side of town. And so, dad took mother on a cold January day into Sibley Hospital.
