Date1920
NotesCharlie Tommie, known as Shirttail Charlie, was a Seminole Indian who in the 1920s spent most of his time in Fort Lauderdale. He dressed in traditional oversized Indian shirts at a time when most Seminole men were adopting pants as their clothing of choice. A restaurant on the south side of New River at 400 Southwest 3rd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale was named after him. It had a 24-foot river taxi, the Shirttail Charlie's Express, which would take guests for a relaxing 45-minute ride along the New River. The restaurant specialized in seafood.
