Description

A postcard depicting the Ramon's, located at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Florida State Road A1A (SR A1A) in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Ramon's was established by Donald Holt and Allene D. Holt (d. 2013) when they migrated to Cocoa Beach in 1956. The restaurant honored the Mercury Seven, who were the seven astronauts to pilot Project Mercury's manned spaceflights. Also called the Original Seven and Astronaut Group 1, the group included Scott Carpenter (1925-2013), Gordon Cooper (1927-2004), John Glenn (b. 1921), Gus Grissom (1926-1967), Wally Schirra (1923-2007), Alan Shepard (1923-1998), and Deke Slayton (1924-1993). In 1975, the Holts sold their restaurant, which has since been replaced by a strip mall.
