Memory Test - where were these photos taken?

I occasionally get images from movie buffs seeking to know the exact location of different scenes in movies that were filmed in the South Florida area. With all the intelligent folks who visit this site we should be able to collectively figure out just about any place sent in plus I'll keep the images online in the appropriate galleries once the locations are figured out.

SOLVED:

1. Long-time viewer and contributor Martha Pierson states that FAIRYLAND was on the north side of NW 36th Street and east of NW 37th Avenue.

2. The Miami Vice photos were identified as the old South Beach Elementary at Alton Road and 4th Street. The photos are now in the Schools gallery.

3. Solved - the beach hotel pool area photos were identified by a Brit friend of Jim Staubach using Google Earth as the Carillon Hotel on Miami Beach. Jim says: "To my real surprise a friend in England identified the spot as the Carillon Hotel at 6801 Collins Ave. Google Earth is great. The distinctive windows seen in the screen caps you posted match the windows seen in the pic on this website: http://www.emporis.com/application/?nav=building&id=carillonbeachhotel-miamibeach-fl-usa It seems unlikely that more than one hotel would have that window pattern. The hotel has been so reconstructed/rebuilt that the poolside location looks different but it is the same location."

NEW: Jim Staubach says: "This is a location we have been trying to find for years. It is the drug lab house that explodes in a Season One Miami Vice episode entitled "Milk Run." It is the old fenced-in house. Chances are the house no longer exists. Back in the 80s TV shows really blew places up. Nevertheless the apartments on the street may be recognizable even if they donít exist anymore. We think it is on the water. One very dark screen cap next to and behind the house could be the Bay and you see a light that looks like itís on top of a radio tower. Hopefully Mark or someone else will recognize the location." Please look at the last 4 photos with the "WHERE?" and see if you can remember the location of these still shots. Thanks!
