GROWING IN STYLE ... ART DECO HOTELS

           Carl Fisher had built a series of luxury resorts, and established Miami Beach as a favorite winter residence for the wealthy, and after surviving the Depression, Miami Beach grew to become popular for all of America.

           Now came what's been famously named Miami Beach's Art Deco Era of the 1930s ... when the largest number (more than 300) of architecturally significan hotels, municipal buildings, and other structures were completed.
