Downtown Miami, Florida


The lions on the left guarded the Bank of Bay Biscayne which stood on the northwest corner of what is now Miami Avenue and W. Flagler Street. The Halcyon Hotel was at East Flagler and 2nd Avenue (then 12th Street and Avenue "B") and had distinctive turrets and can be seen on the left side further down the street.

The Halcyon Hotel is where the Alfred I Dupont stands today which was built in 1939

it was a one-car town back then. Many horses, one car!
