I have been busy editing photographs of my Miami research for a book I am working on to be launched this October. Pictured is the glorious plaster relief entrance detailing on the Congress Hotel on Ocean Drive, designed by Henry Hohauser in 1936. Nearly all of the 1930s buildings in the area have plaster relief details and this is one of the more elaborate, painted in several colours.

The Greystone Hotel is currently closed on Miami South Beach for refurbishment, but I managed to view an original postcard of the hotel during one of my visits to the Wolfsonian Museum archive. -

Waldorf Towers, Miami Beach, was designed by Albert Anis in 1937. Anis previously designed a number of 'art deco' buildings in Chicago before moving down to Miami in the 1930s to design a range of hotels during their mid war leisure boom. This is an original postcard of the hotel which I bought, it was designed to be very high end, as very few hotels had air conditioning at the time as it was so expensive to install. It is now painted in orange and white, but has been several colourways over the years.

The Marlin Hotel, on Collins Avenue, Miami South Beach, was designed by Lawrence Murray Dixon in 1939. Dixon designed many hotels in this style in the area during this period, constructed quickly with cheap materials, they were only intended to last for a short period of time. Typical of this area are the detailed plaster reliefs in the centre of the facade that were painted in colours to accentuate the pattern.
