Oriented with west at the top to maximize the view of Miami Beach, this tremendous panorama was designed by Carmel Wilson and published in 1939 by R.C. Traster & Sons. A variety of labels superimposed over the black and white image provides a detailed overview of the vacation destination in the late 1930’s. Contemporary advertisements around the border add further to the charm, encouraging the reader to ‘Visit Floyd’s Fruit Farm’ or stay at the luxurious Miramar Hotel.
The former is one of several farms in the immediate vicinity of the city which, along with the underdeveloped waterfront, would see significant changes from regional industrialization brought about by the impending Second World War. This is the third edition of several similar promotional views drawn by Marguerite ‘Carmel’ Wilson that provide insight into this development. The verso of the map gives a list of recommended places to stay, eat, play, and more.
