About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Miami Club: 1907

Miami Club: 1907

Miami, Florida, circa 1907. "The Miami Club." Members only, please. 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Wow

Fantastic, great plantings including coontie. I noticed concrete sidewalks in all the early pictures of Miami. Amazing.

Location of the house

Does anyone know if the building still exists, and if so, where in Miami it is located?

[This place is probably long gone. - Dave]

The Green Door

Knocked once
Tried to tell them I'd been there.
Door Slammed. Hospitalities end there.
Wonder, just what's going on in there?

Gone. All gone.

As a long-time resident of Miami, I can safely say that there are zero houses in Miami that look like this anymore; that is a shame. On the plus side, there is likely a Walgreen's where this lovely Queen Anne building used to be. Yay.

Quick entry into the club

Yes, I see you Sir, sneaking over the fence.
