9780738541747: Miami Beach (FL) (Images of America)

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.
