Miami, one of the most popular cities in Florida, is seen through 338 images, including over 140 pairs of “Past and Present” views featuring vintage postcards and modern-day photographs. Many of Miami’s early structures remain, but in dramatically different settings: the Miami News Tower, City Hall, Fort Dallas, and Olympic Theater. Tour the famous Pier 5 and the Bayside Marketplace. Stroll Flagler Street, Biscayne Boulevard, and South Beach’s Ocean Drive. Colorful text provides insight to the area’s history. This is a journey into the past for both residents who remember Miami’s early days and those who are new to Miami, as well as being a great resource for history buffs.
