    • From Tampa Bay Times -

      Lander O. Haige, former co-owner of Tramor cafeterias, which fed thousands of tourists for a half century, died Monday (Nov. 11, 1991). He was 87. He died of a heart-related ailment shortly after being taken to Bayfront Medical Center, said a brother, Enar. Last summer, he became ill aboard ship while returning from his native Sweden, and was airlifted to a hospital at Cape Cod, the brother said."He had had a bad heart for some time," Enar Haige said.Four Haige brothers were involved at one time or another in Tramor cafeterias, three of which were in St. Petersburg. Others operated in West Palm Beach and Orlando.The most popular, No. 4 as it was known to the Haiges for its location at Second Avenue and Fourth Street S, opened to the public before World War II. In 1981, the downtown landmark was sold to the Times Publishing Co., publisher of the St. Petersburg Times. It was refurbished for use as a cafeteria for Times' employees.Other Tramor cafeterias operated earlier in St. Petersburg on First Avenue N in the Arcade and near the corner of First Avenue and Fifth Street N, the brother recalled Tuesday.Enar Haige explained the origin of the cafeterias' name in a 1982 interview.He and his brother, he said, "thought and thought and came up with (Tramor) to make it sound like "more on the tray.' Atlantic City had a Traymor, but we left off the "y."'" "Y's' cost more in advertising," he explained. "The tail goes into another line. We had to be careful of costs."Lander Haige was born in Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. His father was a contractor. His mother, who operated a store and wanted more opportunity for her sons, sent them to live with an uncle, Henry Rawson, in New England. Lander Haige was the first.Rawson owned a cafeteria in St. Petersburg and Lander Haige came here briefly in 1921, his brother said. He returned in the mid-20s and he and his brother worked in the uncle's cafeteria, learning the business. They opened their first Tramor in 1929.Two other brothers, Henry and Allan, later joined them. Henry sold his interest after World War II. Allan died in 1983.The building that was to house the most illustrious Tramor was built in 1929, after the area's land boom collapsed, as a cafeteria. The Great Depression arrived to push the building into receivership. The Haiges rescued it in 1937.When the Swedish brothers first stepped inside, they found a Spanish flavor of boom-time architecture _ a room filled with arches, stucco walls, balconies and pillars _ and they left it pretty much alone.Over the years, however, they made some changes, including a staircase, Spanish-style draperies and acres of ornate grillwork.With two serving lines pushing tenderloin steak for 21 cents and lamb stew for 17 cents during the winter tourist seasons, the Tramor proved highly successful from the start. Along with bargain-basement prices, the brothers attracted business with promotions.At one time, for instance, every customer got a free lottery ticket. The prize was a trip to Havana."Back then, it was only about $30 or $40 for the ticket to Cuba," Lander Haige recalled in a 1975 interview. "So it was easy for us to do, and the customers loved it."We had a "mechanical man,' too, a fellow who would stand by the cashier's counter for hours, stiff, just like a dummy. If you could make him laugh, you got a free meal."Besides his brothers, Enar, of Sun City Center, and Henry, of St. Petersburg, survivors include his wife of 30 years, Inger; two daughters, Diane Baker of Miami and Linda Dyke of Seattle; a sister, Karin Franko of St. Petersburg; and five grandchildren.Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. today at Anderson-McQueen Funeral Home, 2201 M.L. King (Ninth) St. N. A graveside service will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at Sunnyside Cemetery. The Rev. Richard C. Noack will officiate._ Some information in this obituary came from stories by Judy Hill and Michael Marzella in the St. Petersburg Times and from stories in the St. Petersburg Evening Independent.
