Several years ago the Thompson Estate located directly across the street. Thompson was a friend of Ernest Hemingway. There was a giant head of a rhinoceros or some other huge dead beast brought back to Key West from Africa hanging on the wall. The grounds were huge but filled with palm trees to provide total privacy. As I reflect on this little part of the island, many of the lots, like 1406 South Street, had not been built upon before. Perhaps Papa Hemingway and Thompson stood on the grounds of 1406 South and practiced shooting a wild chicken or iguana. Who knows.
