Great place

I got engaged at the Casa Monica in 2000. It's hard to imagine living in Florida before AC.


I've been in the coffee shop at the base of that tower many times. One of my favorite people watching places.

I would have guessed a little later then 1891. The safety bicycle and the men's boaters look more like 1901 to me.

Casa Monica

Now the Casa Monica Hotel. Whose website has a nice history page.

America with a few states less

Beautiful hotel complete with fountains, gardens and a 44 star American flag.
