The third and final installation in the library series celebrating the centennial of Miami Beach, Miami Beach: From Mangrove to Tourist Mecca documents the city’s fledgling years. Sculpted by pioneering developers such as Carl Fisher, Miami Beach blossomed during the 1920s into a winter tourist hotspot catering to the wealthy elite. Photographic albums of “lost” hotels—the Nautilus, Flamingo, King Cole, and others—show how these self-contained luxury resorts lured the rich and famous south with regattas, elephant rides, and amenities such as tennis courts, golf courses, polo fields, private bungalows, and yacht docks.
