1940's - a "Beach bus" on the mainland in Miami on N. E. 1st Avenue and 10th Street

Miami, Florida


Thanks to Martha Pierson for supplying the photo. This view is looking north on NE 1st Avenue at 10th Street. The "June Apartments" are on the left side past the bus and there is a tall Withers Storage building on the left side in the background and surely someone (Dick Besoli or Burl Grey? haha) knows exactly where that bar was? The buses on Miami Beach were known as "Beach buses" to distinguish them from the bus line on the mainland owned by the Pawley family. There's a sailor walking away from the camera on the left side. Amber Pies is on the right hand side and the seven story Dolphin Hotel is behind that. A closeup of the bus is in the next image. Thank you also to Spike for correcting the location from NE 2nd to NE 1st Avenue.

This photo and caption clears up a mistake I made in a previous comment on a photo of the Dolphin Hotel. I incorrectly identified this street as N.W 2nd Ave. but now agree with your caption, it is NE 1st Avenue. Sorry about my error.
