Ahh…the first ‘Drive-Up’ windows in Sarasota debuted at Palmer Bank with 1st Street separating them from the bank. The man in the convertible actually worked in the Palmer Bank building. I’m curious why he just didn’t go downstairs to a teller window to take care of his business. He probably liked driving up to make his deposit. Anyhow, this man was well known in Sarasota and almost was assassinated in his office in the bank building. Your task is to answer the proverbial question, “Who am I?”
