Dublin Core

Title

BISCAYNE BOULEVARD AND HOTELS, MIAMI, FLORIDA

Description

This postcard depicts a view of Biscayne Boulevard and the hotels located along the street in Miami, Florida. The names of the hotels are noted above each building in fine black print. From left to right, there is the McAllister Hotel, the Columbus Hotel, the Miami Colonial Hotel, the Alcazar Hotel, the Roosevelt Hotel (farther in the distance), and the Sears Roebuck Store Building is the little white building all the way to the right of the card. The first four hotels on the left all have communal parking areas where numerous cars are parked or trying to find a spot. Many palm trees are also scattered throughout the lot. The pink and orange tones of the sky signify the upcoming sunset.

The ideally situated Biscayne Boulevard is one of Miami's many fine automotive highways and is perhaps the most beautiful modern street in the south.
