About this title

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author:

Seth Bramson, whose family moved to Miami Beach in 1946, is known nationally as the foremost authority on the history of transportation in, and travel to, Florida. He is the company historian of the Florida East Coast Railway; his book, Speedway to Sunshine, one of the most popular and in-demand railroad history titles ever published, is the railway’s official history. His collection of Miami area memorabilia and Floridiana is the largest such private collection in America. A faculty member of Barry University in Miami Shores, Bramson is the author of three books and more than 60 articles on Florida’s local and transportation history.
