Miami Beach

Creator: Seth Bramson | History - 2005-10-05

The images in this volume evoke poignant memories of Miami Beachs great past, almost inevitable downturn, and return to life with the discovery of South Beach and a renewed interest in art deco.

Publisher: Arcadia Pub

About this book
Miami Beach began its rise to the top of the worlds resort scene when Carl Fisher, builder of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, arrived prior to 1920. The lure of The Worlds 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 Beachs 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; Parhams; Juniors; Wolfies; Pumperniks; the first hotel on Miami Beach, Browns; the Roney Plaza; the Fontainebleau; and, of course, the people who helped create this modern paradise.

Miami Beach, blueprint of an Eden : lives seen through the prism of family and place

Creator: Michele Oka Doner, Mitchell Wolfson | 2007-11-08

Draws on the stories of the Wolfson and Oka families to present a visual history of Miami Beach, drawing on historical archives to cover regional culture, architecture, politics, and more. 10,000 first printing.

Publisher: Collins Design

About this book
Miami Beach is the story of an extraordinary time and place, told through the prism of two founding families, the Wolfsons and the Okas. The authors' fathers were each mayors of Miami Beach, one in the 1940s and the other in the '50s and early '60s, and their mothers were prominent first ladies, who regularly welcomed the crème de la crème of society to their enchanting city. The Wolfsons' and Okas' exhaustive family archives provide a rich cultural, architectural, political, social, botanical, stylistic, gastronomic, geological, and poetic history of the contemporary phenomenon that is Miami Beach. At once an intimate memoir, a sprawling history, and a work of great artistic integrity, Miami Beach invites you to step back into a world so visual, mythical, and filled with family lore that its local intensity illuminates a national character.

    A strong visual documentation of a lost era of architecture.

    0 5/5 Stacey May Brady (Destin, FL United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Miami Beach Deco (Hardcover) This book presents a strong visual documentation and unsentimental ode to a lost era of deco architecture. Historically relevant, this compilation is a classic architectural photography book. Ever shrewed in his choices, Brooke had the access and acumen to capture the detail and bravado of the deco style in all of its glory. I love the book and the images are terrifically cool and crisp. The photographer has a point of view but ultimately he photographs what is there, capturing a moment in time (or perhaps a moment lost in time?). I bought three copies as gifts for friends and they love the book as well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 21, 2011

    Good Value

    0 3/5 Annie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Miami Beach Deco (Hardcover) This is a small sized book - 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 which I wasn't anticipating. It contains good photos of buildings and close-up details of some buildings but not much else. The photos are not individually captioned, you have to refer to the Index at the back which provides the name and date built but no other details. I'd been looking for a book with a ton of photos and history of the buildings which doesn't seem to exist so this is adequate, particularly for the price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 29, 2013

    A disappointment

    This might have been a nice "coffee table" book.As it is, it measures only about 7" wide by 5" tall. The technical quality of the photos is good, but in a lot of the individual building "portraits" there are random cars parked in front of the building, which hide some of the details and distracts from the overall effect. Only the barest minimum of information about what's in the picture is given, and that's in a short list at the back of the book. The main part of the book is just photo after photo, with no information on the name of the building, the architect, when it was built, how it was restored, when the photo was taken, who inhabits it now. No comments on style details (mediterranean, "ocean liner", color scheme, etc). There are some nice fold-out pages showing a wider view, but again, it would have been better appreciated in a larger format.I bought this as a souvenir from the Wolfsonian Museum there. I highly recommend that museum.

    Beautiful Memories, beautiful book

    0 5/5 Marsha Collier "dealingdiva" (Los Angeles, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Miami Beach: Blueprint of an Eden: Lives Seen Through the Prism of Family and Place (Hardcover) I grew up in Miami Beach a bit later than the authors. When the book arrived I couldn't put it down. I loved the photos and historic reference; they showed just how special Miami Beach was. My only wish is that the authors would have expanded their history a bit.Perhaps add info on Central Beach Elementary, Ida M Fisher Junior and Miami Beach High as well as some of the other early landmarks (the Post Office on Washington Avenue). I realize the authors wrote through their own families' experience, but there is so much more... and so many others who contributed so much to the city.Hopefully one day they'll do another book to immortalize a truly "Magic City." 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 30, 2006

    EXCELLENT BOOK on Miami Beach

    0 5/5 Andrew Delaplaine (Miami Beach) - See all my reviews This review is from: In the Spirit of Miami Beach (Hardcover) Many books have been written about Miami Beach (and more lately, South Beach).But none has the wit and verve exhibited in this book by David Leddick, who makes his primary home on South Beach, so he knows what he's talking about.But even forgetting the crisp writing, get this book for so many previously unseen photographs.

    The real Miami Vice

    An enthralling behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the politics of Miami Beach and the birth of South Beach. As the new kid on the block, Daoud shows readers that he is an unwitting lamb going to slaughter as he embarks on his path in politics. This book is an exciting, rollicking, suspenseful page-turner--I absolutely could not put it down! This book has something for everyone: a nieve protagonist, sex, bribery, action-packed chase scenes, criminals, Miami Vice appearances, cleandestine meetings, Mariel refugees, police in hot pursuit, love interests, flashy South Beach developers, and Dauod's trial. Daoud's story is sure to be a movie --he's led a multifaceted life loaded with intrigue and twists and turns.Daoud's story begins with his entre into local Miami Beach politics as a young, nieve law school graduate whose political aspirations stem from his desire to help the downtrodden seniors who populated Miami Beach in the 70s and 80s. He succeeds by being... 5/5 Ruth A. Weiss "Chrysalis" (boca raton, FL United States) - See all my reviews, May 20, 2008

    A scandalous depiction of South Beach and its players

    The Sins of South Beach is a "scandalous" depiction of the rise of South Beach and the painful decline of a great man. I found the book to be a riveting tale of corruption, intrigue, and passion. As a frequent visitor to Miami over the years and a nine year resident, I have always been fascinated with how this city has gone through such a rapid and extreme transformation. Alex Daoud bravely told the story of his own young ambition that was always motivated by good intentions. With all of the good he did for the discarded elderly and dilapidated diamond in the ruff that was Miami Beach, he still fell prey to the temptations of power. The era known as the days of the "Cocaine Cowboys" was the critical time that Alex was a rising player in Miami politics and mayor of Miami Beach. His candid and unapologetic account of those days reads like a novel yet is based on real life events. I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't one day turned into a movie. I highly recommend this book to anyone who... 5/5 Jeannette S.

    If you will use it for what it was designed (shower speaker), you won't be disappointed.

    When I opened the box, and took the speaker for a ride in my bedroom, I immediately had some concerns. After taking it to the shower most of the concerns disappeared:- The suction cap did not hold on my furniture too long, but there was no issue in the shower. I sprayed a little water on the tile, that made the suction more powerful.- The speaker wasn't standing upright, like on the picture, it was nodding instead. I found this little aesthetic defect pretty useful in the shower: the water can easily leave the speaker.- I felt a little too bass in the voice, until I turned it on in the shower. When you are in a small, closed room, surrounded by warbling water, the voice has different attributes.There are two things the location couldn't fix:- Don't expect that you can use this speaker as a hands free device for you phone. The microphone is so weak, you should almost swallow the speaker to be heard. The shower makes it more difficult to hear you.

    Taotronics shower speaker

    Customer Video Review Length:: 5:15 Mins Included in the box with the shower speaker are the instructions, and a DC plug/USB cable (approximately 3 feet, 3 inches in length). I would have preferred the connection for charging the speaker to be a micro charging cable instead of this USB/DC connector as it limits this to finding a specific replacement cable if this one goes bad.Charging the speaker took about 2 hours to fully charge. A red LED indicates charging and turns off when fully charged. To power on and pair, hold the power button for a few seconds until the LED flashes blue. Pairing with my S4 was quick and easy and battery life is at about 5 hours of playing time. The speaker has in addition to the power button on the front, the volume controls (next/back), play/pause and an answer call button. The buttons are large but the symbols indicating the function of the buttons are difficult to see and blend into the white silicone.
