BUY ME! Great book for nostalgia fans - The Orange Bowl

Miami, Florida


My friend and past photo customer Scott B. Smith recently published this great pictorial book on the Orange Bowl. His book can be ordered at:

Scott's description of his book: The Orange Bowl Stadium. Put to rest and carted away in 2008. It was an example of a bygone era in sports stadium architecture, when simple design provided a basic function. A place just for football born in the late 1930's. The book is not about football so much, but a visual memory for the scores of fans who may not have realized the last game attended would be their final time in the stadium. The first chapter revisits my family's photos from the 1939 game to the 1970's. Chapter Two begins with the condition of the stadium in January, 2008, and leads to the demolition period. Finally, a chapter of aerial images compiled through the years completes the story. I attempted to capture many of the seat locations and the view to the field. Individual fine art prints are available from any image in the book. The architectural survey was completed in January, 2008, and demolition finished in late spring.
