Downtown Belize City mid 1970's. The Belizean Fried Chicken sign, old carrier bikes, and Trout Hall orange juice boxes

This was the Belizean Fried Chicken business, a different business the Tux Belizean Fried Chicken was downstairs of La Minerva Hotel. The building was destroyed by fire. The Original Tucks Fried Chicken was downstairs of Triangle Bar and then moved to the corner of Freetown and Barrack Road.

Trout Hall was produced by the Citrus Company of Belize (CCB). It was orange and grapefruit juice and grapefruit sections in light syrup. Back in the 60s, 70s and 80s, the factory at Pomona was a dependable source of income for workers down South in general and Dangriga in particular.

The delivery bikes were probably from RoMacs delivering groceries. The customers would call in on the phone and the orders were taken and fill. It was then delivered.

Harold Usher: The guy on the Delivery Bicycle could have been me in 1954 Christmas when I worked at Brodie for the Holidays as a Messenger. We had a big box inside that front carrier and delivered Groceries all over LOITTLE Belize, more so at the Barracks, The Fort and Foreshore. Everybody else bought their groceries at the local grocery stores. One of my customers was a Millionnaire at the Fort named Glickstein.
