Hotel Everglades Building _ 8x8 _ 24 May 16_RTP_SFW

The Everglades Hotel on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami was built back in the 1920’s.  It was finished in 1926, several months before the famous hurricane of 1926 that demolished a lot of South Florida from the Keys to Miami.  I have seen several shows on this hurricane on the Florida Public Broadcasting Channel that have been very interesting.  I have posted other photos from Miami and Miami Beach that my father had taken, but just ran across this negative the other day.  The hotel was demolished back on January 23, 2007 and there are videos on YouTube showing the demolition if you are interested.  If anyone has any stories that they want to share of their stay at the Everglades Hotel, we would love to hear them.  I still have more negatives of Miami to scan and post, so please check back.  Thanks again for looking and check back …. Frank
