Baby Girl at Fast Buck Freddies




Baby Girl at Fast Buck Freddies





Fast Buck Freddie's was founded in 1976 by Bill Conkle and Tony Falcone. The first store, located at 524 Duval (at Applerouth Lane), was geared to the early restoration crowd who discovered Key West before the tourists. FBF sold fabric, pillows, baskets, rugs, lamps and window coverings that would appeal to the chic restoration tastes. The concept was a hit and we did $22 on our first day!! Expansion soon crowded Bill & Tony out of the stock room where they were living. But they continued to shower under a hose in the backyard of the store!!!

Fast Buck Freddie's Department Store on Duval St. in Key West, Florida



So where did the name 'Fast Buck Freddie's' come from? Well, it was a popular cut from the first gold record of the group Jefferson Starship, Red Octopus. Desperate to find an interesting name, Bill & Tony were flipping through record albums for inspiration--and Fast Buck Freddie's, a most unlikely name for a retail store, seemed perfect for South Florida: home of pirates, con artists, real estate sharks, and drug runners. With Key West's salty history, we would be the new pirates in town. We vowed to always contradict our name with the appearance of the store and the merchandise. And the name has been a great success--not only with customers who promote us--but with the media who has lavished attention on us. We enjoy a national and international reputation


During our second year, the old S. H. Kress Dime store closed; and the 15,000 sq. foot building was quickly snapped up by a local entrepreneur. Fast Bucks, expanded to its max, in the small conch house went to the Kress building's new owner to inquire on space. He admired Fast Buck Freddie's and wanted to give us an opportunity. In November of 1978 we opened a further expanded Fast Buck Freddie's in our current location. Although the store was much smaller than it is today; we added cards, stationary, candles, and men's and women's sportswear to increase our repeat local traffic. John Muhly, our General Manager for the past 29 years, joined us at this time, coming to us as a men's sportswear buyer of a fine Florida specialty store.
Suddenly, in the early 1980's others began to discover our island and with the influx of the tourist, Key West and Fast Buck Freddie's prospered. Year by year we knocked out a rear wall here and there and expanded the store to its present size.











1939-Jefferson High School




1939-Jefferson High School





1319 East 41st Street,
Los Angeles, California

In 1915, the citizen of Los Angeles voted to sell bonds to raise 4,600,000 dollars to build schools in the Los Angeles area. Approximately $500,000 was appropriated to build Jefferson High School[2] on the "Stadium East Grounds" (The Old Coliseum)[A] which held approximately 25,000 people in a circled amphitheater configuration. The "Stadium" as it was known was the site for hosting and entertaining travelers on the way to both the San Diego and San Francisco world expo in 1915. Numerous Rodeos and bicycle races were held at the location.[3]

Architect Norman F Marsh was hired to design the new Jefferson High School complex, the property front 1235 feet on Hooper Avenue, 1149 feet on Compton Avenue, and 952 feet on thirty Fourth Street and 392 feet on thirty eight streets. The buildings of the group will be of brick and concrete construction, being faced with rug tapestry brick and trimmed with artificial stoned. All corridors and stairways will be made absolutely fire proof. The classic style will be followed, each of the main structures having a dignified entrance portico with stone pediment and columns.[2]

Jefferson opened its doors on September 11, 1916, with 24 faculty members and two buildings completed. Theodore Fulton was installed as the School first Principal.

On March 10, 1933 in the city of Long Beach, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 which totally destroyed the infrastructure of the six buildings which composed the Jefferson High School Campus. The campus was closed from March 10 until April 6 while the school boards access the situation. On April 6, tent bungalows provided by the school board was erected on the football fields. Classes were shortened to half day sessions in order to serve the entire student population.[5]
[edit] The New Beginning

In 1933, Architect Stiles O Clement was hired to build a 45 unit campus with a budget of $353,000.[6] The "Streamline Moderne" building structures were completed in 1935. Ross Dickinson was selected and funded by Federal Art Project to Paint four 11 feet by 5.5 foot murals with the theme “The History of Recorded Word”. The murals were completed in 1937.
