My mother wrote a book about the life and times of her father James Buren Baker, Sr. who lived with his wife and family in Miami, FL when it first started to become a town and then a city. In her book she mentions Elser's Pier
and Budge's Hardward Store.
My grandmother and my wifes grandmother lived very near where this photo was taken during this time period. That must be a lagre part of the population of Miami in this shot!
