Not necessarily THAT kind; the group at left. Looks like they stopped long enough to chat and register on the photo.

I spent fourteen loooooong years as a Jacksonville resident and doggone if any of these recent pictures of the place looks even remotely familiar. Probably a combination of "progress," Florida-style, plus simple repressed memory.
