"Smitty's Wishing Well Restaurant. New, modern, air-conditioned, seating 125 people. Located at one of Miami's most important intersections. Catering to both tourists and local people. Serving good food at moderate prices. You'll like the Wishing Well!"
I had numerous meals in this restaurant in the late 50's/early 60's because my aunt's boss liked to go there and he took us there fairly often. They had a wishing well located in the grass by the parking sign and I dropped many a penny into it and none of the wishes came true of course.
The forerunner to Smitty's Wishing Well was Smitty's Barbecue which operated in the 1930's and 1940's. Larry Wall contributed an image of the barbecue restaurant at the same location and it is located in this same gallery at http://www.pbase.com/image/124053021 Larry's mom and dad owned the barbecue restaurant from 1949 until 1955 at which time the old restaurant was torn down and this restaurant built on the same site.
