Overview

From its birth to the present, Miami has consistently built and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, Miami has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Greater Miami, Seth H. Bramson provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Greater Miami. Remembering Greater Miami captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From Miami as an early tourist destination to its role as an Army Air Force training center during World War II, Remembering Greater Miami follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
