CORRECTION......Actually the "pamphlet" referred to is technically a booklet, as it is stapled together in book form.
Have pristine condition phamphlet titled"Souvenir of Miami, Miami Beach and Coral Gables Florida".Dates to the twenties. Has picture of the Roman Pool, Flamingo hotel with Baby Gar v1 speedboat, and many other brightly colored photos. Wondered if anyone knows if it has any value?
Just a few years later, the Roney Plaza would rise immediately adjated to the Roman Pools (you are looking North)...
I find it interesting that there seems to be two radio towers just West of the Roman Pools at around what's now Collins Avenue at 22nd Street... evidently an early attempt at broadcasting from Miami Beach...
I must admit, I didn't even know this existed...... Wow.
