Description - Miami Beach by Seth Bramson

Miami Beach began its rise to the top of the world s resort scene when Carl Fisher, builder of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, arrived prior to 1920. The lure of The World s Playground was impossible to ignore for many, as hotels and restaurants flourished, even through the Great Depression. The images in this volume evoke poignant memories of Miami Beach s great past, almost inevitable downturn, and return to life with the discovery of South Beach and a renewed interest in art deco. Among the vintage views, most of which have never before been published, are early Lincoln Road and Washington Avenue; Miami Beach High School; Parham s; Junior s; Wolfies; Pumperniks; the first hotel on Miami Beach, Brown s; the Roney Plaza; the Fontainebleau; and, of course, the people who helped create this modern paradise."
