Around 1954, Big Jon came to Miami. He appeared at the Miami Stadum. I was in the stands and wanted to take some pictures of him. I was too far away to see much with my camera, so I walked onto the field and started taking the pictures that you will see below.

As I walked onto the field, a number of other people started walking onto the field and finally there were so many people standing in the field, that they had to stop the show and ask everyone to return to their seats. So, if you were in Miami, Florida back then and attended this event, I'm the kid that stopped the show.
