VINTAGRAPH • WPA • WWII • VINTAGE MIAMI: c. 1960s

The Dennis (Colorized): 1905

The Dennis (Colorized): 1905

The original is here.

I originally started this image coloring the hotel a brilliant blue. *Then* I decided to do a little research.

One colorized postcard from the era showed the hotel as all red. One postcard showed it as all green. *Two* postcards from back then showed a tan color with a green top. The votes were in. Unlike in many of my colorizations, therefore, the color scheme here is probably more or less accurate.

As with all of my images, this functions as wallpaper for my desktop, and has been cropped to those dimensions. View full size.
