Pinewood Cemetery on 47th Ave. just south of Sunset Drive dates back to the 1890’s. It is the oldest cemetery south of the Miami River.

La movilización masiva que llegó a #Miami a partir de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, hizo que el desempleo cayera del 25% al 1.2% -entonces el país atravesaba por #TheGreatDepression-, aunque el crecimiento demográfico la tomó por sorpresa: perdió su aire de pueblo pequeño y el gobierno se vio obligado a instaurar una libreta de racionamiento para víveres y gasolina. #miami #tour #unavueltaporlaculturapopulardemiami #miamibeach #brickell #worldwar2 #sobe #miamiwriter #miamiwriter #305 #miamihistory #miamiculture #miamihistorymuseum

Every time I walk under these giant Philodendron leaves I feel like a Lilliputian in a land of giants. It certainly helps put things back into perspective about our place in Nature.
Come visit Patch of Heaven Sanctuary and get your perspective back also.

The soundbooth in the auditorium at the old Miami Science Museum. Built in the 50's this theater was always a new experience. Water leaks, a/c issues, lighting issues, hodge podge sound upgrades, and roaches big enough to startle a grown man. The booth had no a/c so a rip and run was a sure way to get back at a coworker, hence the FML.

Los amaneceres de #miamibeach se vieron alterados en 1961, cuando un hombre de raza negra empezó a correr por el #MacArthurCauseway todos los días a las 5AM. El sujeto era muy alto y robusto, respondía al nombre de #CassiuisClay, y poco después se coronaría como campeón de los pesos pesados de boxeo en el #MiamiBeachConventionCenter #miami #sobe #tourunavueltaporlaculturapopulardemiami #305 #muhammadali #miamibeach #miamiweddingphotographer #miamiboxing #box #miamihistory #miamiculture

#TBT 1991 -Lionel Corp founded Playworld in the 1960's. By 1991 the chain grew to over 100 stores including many in South Florida & was the 4th largest toy retailer in the country but found itself unable to compete on prices with the much larger Toys "R" Us. In 1993 they ended up liquidating all of its stores & went out of business. We remember the Playworld on W 49 St in Hialeah and on Coral Way in Miami. Do you remember Lionel Playworld? 🙌🏻

BLACK HISTORY SPOTLIGHT. Dana Albert Dorsey, a black pioneer, came to Miami around 1892 with the railroad from Quitman, Georgia. It is said that with $25 he purchased his first parcel of land which he developed into a business empire. Through wise investments, he amassed the largest real estate holdings of any black man in the United States becoming Miami's first black millionaire. His numerous enterprises in Miami included the Dorsey Hotel, a popular gathering place in the 1920's and a neighborhood drygoods store. He had real estate holdings in Dade and Broward counties, Cuba, and the Bahamas. It was said that on Sundays, Dorsey rode around in a chauffeuered limousine collecting rents from tenants.

Dorsey used his wealth and influence as a businessman and property owner to make significant contributions to the community. He donated to Dade County Public Schools the property at Northwest 71st Street and 17th Avenue, on which Dorsey High School was later built. He also donated land to the community's first park and library.

Named in his memory are Dorsey High School (now the D.A. Dorsey Educational Center), Dorsey Park and Dorsey Avenue (NW 3rd Avenue). The Dorsey House located at 250 NW 9th Street in Miami, is listed as an historic site.

Alhambra Water Tower

The water tower was built in 1924. It was designed to resemble a lighthouse to disguise the unappealing sight of a water tower. It was part of the Coral Gables domestic water supply system until 1931, when it was disconnected from the system and abandoned after the utility company owning it started buying water from the City of Miami. The city restored it in 1993.
