The Welcome Sign of Little Havana in Miami.
History Lesson: Little Havana is the most Cuban influenced area in the 1960s. Before that it was just any other “Calle”. It was named “Little Havana” after the capital of Cuba. Little Havana was the best known neighborhood for Cuban exiles in the world. It is characterized by its street life, restaurants, music and other cultural activities, mom and pop enterprises, political passion, and great warmth amongst it's residents. By 1970s, Cuban Americans became permanent residents due to the political power in Cuba. Today, Little Havana is the most concentrated area of Latins and many businesses are still owned by Cubans. In 2017, it was declared a national treasure and one of the Most Endangered Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservations. Born and raised in Miami, the Cuban culture is such huge part of my up-bringing. I basically grew up in Shanendoah where my abuelos lived and my parents were raised. From the walks to McDonald’s where you can see los viejitos jugando dominós, visiting Tio-abuelos blocks away and even Sunday masses at St. Peter & Paul are some childhood memories. Although, I am far from experiencing what many of our granparents and parents went through, I feel proud and honored to be a Cuban-American. 🇨🇺❤️🏡

d. #1898. Printed late 1898. VERY RARE EXTENDED First Edition 2-Tone Brown Leather Hard Cover.
Cuba's Great Struggle For Freedom, Illustrated. With an additional 93 pages covering the end of the Spanish American War.
by Ambassador Gonzalo de Quesada of the Republic of Cuba & author Henry D. Northrop.
.
This book's cover came both - heavily decorated with painted gold lettering - and in 2-toned brown leather variants, which were produced late in the year #1898. The page edges were marbled and contains many phototype engravings. The version printed early in 1898 only contained 664 pages while those printed late in 1898 contained 757 pages total. This book's audience is quite deliberately the American people. It pitches the conflict over #Cuba as Cuba's war of #independence and not an American #war against a foreign power. It embellishes the idea of the United States ousting a hostile colonizer from the Greater Antilles and encourages Cuban patriotism.

ABCs of BNC: K is for Key Biscayne
The Biscayne Nature Center is located in Crandon Park on the north end of Key Biscayne. The island was first inhabited by the Tequesta tribe of Native Americans. Explorer Ponce de Leon named the island “Santa Marta” and claimed it for Spain in 1513. In the early 20th century, William Matheson developed the nation’s largest coconut plantation on Key Biscayne. Matheson’s heirs donated much of the former coconut plantation to create Crandon Park in exchange for the construction of a causeway to link the island to the mainland. Visit us to enjoy Key Biscayne and to learn more about the island’s fascinating history. #miamihistory #keybiscayne #explorida #florida #crandonpark

A little neighborhood history for you guys:
☀️While several Coppertone Girl signs were installed throughout Miami-Dade County, the MiMo District sign was originally installed in 1959 on the Parkleigh Building at 5th Street and Biscayne Boulevard. It remained there until Hurricane Andrew damaged it and the Parkleigh Building was demolished in 1992. Dade Heritage Trust (@dadeheritagetrust) adopted the sign and moved it to a new location from which it was removed for various reasons. The sign was reinstalled at its current location in 2008 through a collaboration between Dade Heritage Trust, who donated the sign to the MiMo Biscayne Association (@mimobiscayne); Tropical Signs of Florida, who restored and rebuilt the sign; and Coppertone’s parent company, Schering-Plough, who donated approximately $100,000 for its restoration and installation.
🌴The MiMo Biscayne Association is proud to be the owner and caretaker of the Coppertone Girl sign — a fabulous jewel in the MiMo Historic District. ✨#miamimotelstories

A "square grouper" is a large bale of #marijuana thrown overboard or out of airplanes in South Florida during the 70's and 80's. Occasionally, you may spot a square grouper floating offshore or even washed up on beaches today.

It is somewhat of an unofficial Floridian tradition to cut open these bales and run off with as much soggy "sea weed" as you can (though this is, of course, illegal).
.
In 1979, the U.S. Customs Service reported that 87% of all marijuana seizures in the U.S. were made in the South Florida area.

Due to the region's 5,000 miles of coast and coastal waterways, and its close proximity to the Caribbean and Latin America, South Florida was a pot smuggler's paradise.

In sharp contrast to the brazenly violent "Cocaine Cowboys" of the 1980s, Miami's marijuana smugglers were cooler, calmer, and typically nonviolent.

Despite their chill reputation, Robert Platshorn and Robert Meinster—heads of the Black Tuna Gang and labelled "the biggest marijuana smugglers ever" by Attorney General Griffin Bell—were dealt the longest marijuana-related prison sentences in American history at 64 and 54 years, respectively.

They were convicted for importing at least a million pounds of marijuana—ten times the amount the organization actually moved.
