Miami Beach Memories, A Nostalgic Chronicle of Days Gone by

Creator: Joann Biondi | History - 2006-10-01

Overflowing with personal memories and fascinating memorabilia, this is a book to treasure.

Publisher: Globe Pequot

About this book
Miami Beach has lots of memories to share. Memories of the 1920s, when Johnny Weissmuller flaunted his freestyle skills at local pools; of the 1930s, when Desi Arnaz strummed his first guitar; of World War II, when Clark Gable romanced more than one local girl; of the Fabulous Fifties, when the Rat Pack owned the joint; and of the 1960s, when Muhammad Ali snagged the heavyweight championship of the world in the Miami Beach Auditorium. A tiny spit of sand barely 15 miles long and a mile wide, the island is known throughout the world as a tropical haven and vacation playground—a neon-lit Garden of Eden dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure. And yet, serious things have gone on there. Dark things, like the blatant anti-Semitism of the 1930s, that have been intentionally forgotten from the collective psyche. In that sense, Miami Beach is a sandbox full of paradoxes. To unravel those paradoxes, Biondi interviewed more than one hundred current and former residents of the city: lawyers and land developers, doctors and teachers, artists and politicians, waiters and maids, photographers and strippers, comedians and singers. There’s even a Native Indian chief and a former U.S. Attorney General in the bunch. Their personal memories, along with stunning black-and-white photographs, document the island's history in a way no third-person history can. The many great images include Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Edna Buchanan in a bikini (she wanted to show off); boxer Jack Dempsey holding eight ice cream cones on the beach; the Beatles/Judy Garland/Jackie Gleason posing with hairdresser Ruth Regina (not together, of course); all the strippers in their stripping glory; and tons of evocative family portraits. The book also features social artifacts from the era, including original ID cards that African-American workers were made to carry in the 1930s, war posters, and restaurant menus.A nostalgic chronicle of days gone by, Miami Beach Memories is a chorus of varied voices and diverse points of view, a mosaic of poignant anecdotes, and an eclectic collage that paints a portrait of what life was once like on this tiny but fascinating island.

Miami Beach

Creator: Seth Bramson | History - 2005

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

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
Miami Beach began its rise to the top of the world's resort scene when Carl Fisher, builder of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, arrived prior to 1920. The lure of "The World's 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 Beach's 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; Parham's; Junior's; Wolfies; Pumperniks; the first hotel on Miami Beach, Brown's; the Roney Plaza; the Fontainebleau; and, of course, the people who helped create this modern paradise.

Lost Miami Beach

Creator: Carolyn Klepser | History - 2014-09-23

Join historian Carolyn Klepser as she rediscovers through words and pictures the lost treasures of Miami Beach and recounts the changes that sparked a renowned preservation movement.

Publisher: The History Press

About this book
Miami Beach has been “America’s Playground” for a century. Still one of the world’s most popular resorts, its 1930s Art Deco architecture placed this picturesque city on the National Register of Historic Places. Yet a whole generation of earlier buildings was erased from the landscape and mostly forgotten: the house of refuge for shipwrecked sailors, the oceanfront mansions of Millionaires’ Row, entrepreneur Carl Fisher’s five grand hotels, the Community Theatre, the Miami Beach Garden and more. Join historian Carolyn Klepser as she rediscovers through words and pictures the lost treasures of Miami Beach and recounts the changes that sparked a renowned preservation movement.

    EXCELLENT BOOK on Miami Beach

    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. I pored over it for hours.Five Stars! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 5, 2010

    A strong visual documentation of a lost era of architecture.

    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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 21, 2011

    Good Value

    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.

    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. I don't recommend... 1/5 Monrovia (Salem, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Miami Beach Deco (Hardcover) This might have been a nice "coffee table" book.As it is, it measures only about 7" wide by 5" tall.

It was so nice knowing that the sunscreen was going on me and not just in the air around me. I like this spray because it's great for my active lifestyle. Powerful, effective, and lightweight, this is my go-to spray sunscreen. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 25, 2015

    Great history book of Miami Beach.

    5/5 mary c. kerr - See all my reviews This review is from: LOST MIAMI BEACH (Paperback) I didn't buy the book on Amazon, but it is a fantastic history of Miami Beach. Our son and family bought an older home there and it was fascinating to read the history of the area where they live. A great deal of research went into writing this and it is an invaluable background for learning about Miami Beach history.
