1925 - Coral Gables incorporated as a city with William Jennings Bryan addressing crowd

Coral Way & Ponce de Leon, Coral Gables, Florida


Thank you to Alvin Lederer for contributing this great old image. The description on the back of the photo states: "Scenes which attended the Incorporation of Coral Gables, Fla., on April 25, 1925. William Jennings Bryan addresses crowd at intersection of Coral Way and Ponce de Leon Boulevard on day street car service started."

The back of the photo was a news release which was used in a story about the 25th Anniversary of Coral Gables in 1950. It states: "(For use April 23, with E. V. W. Jones' Coral Gables, Fla., AP-N story on Coral Gables 25th Anniversary)" An image of the press information is two photos to the right of this photo in the gallery.

Contact me at OldMiamiMemories@gmail.com - you can send photo scans as e-mail attachments but I would like to know dates if possible (at least the decade), who, what, when, where if you have that information. Also if you know the photographer's name I'd like to credit him/her and I'll credit you in the comments for contributing the old image. Thanks.
