When in Miami, It's—Chesapeake Sea Food House Postcard

Alternative Title

Chesapeake Sea Food House Postcard


Miami (Fla.)


A postcard depicting the exterior of Chesapeake Sea Food House, a restaurant on the way to the Hialeah Race Track and the Miami International Airport. The restaurant was owned and operated by the former owners of the Maryland Resort Hotel, but is no longer in operation. The restaurant was bought out by the New England Oyster House chain, which continued to use the same name. In the 1960s or 1970s, the Chesapeake Sea Food House went out of business.

This postcard is part of a collection of postcards kept by Lucile Campbell, a schoolteacher in Sanford, Florida, for 30 years. In 1931, she took advantage of a special rate for teachers and sailed to Europe, where she traveled for several months and is thought to have acquired many of these postcards. During the 1940-1941 school year, Campbell taught at Sanford Grammar School. Before her retirement in 1970, she taught at many other area schools, including the Oviedo School, Westside Grammar School, and Pinecrest Elementary School. Campbell used these postcards as aids in her classrooms to teach advanced subjects, such as Shakespearean drama. The collection, along with her other teaching aids, papers, and photographs, was later found at Sanford Grammar School after it became the University of Central Florida's Public History Center. Campbell's postcard collection and photographs provide insight into the life of a respected Florida educator.
