“The Coming of the Automobile Calls Forth the ‘Tin Can Tourist’: ‘Afternoon dance at a Miami, Florida trailer camp, 1938.”

SINCE the photo is the thing, here’s a view closer to original size for your enjoyment. There are a hundred stories told here, at least.   The event was captured at Ollie’s Trailer Park, a “Trailer Paradise,” which was then situated on Biscayne Blvd. at 107 Street. With that introduction I will leave you to the image, a pure classic.

Just click on image to enlarge. If still further enlargement is desired, used your browser’s “zoom in” function under “View” (or whatever).

DanceThank you.

    I’m sooo glad to have accidentally found you, your writings, opinions and advise (if you believe in accidents, I don’t). You are so gifted in many, many ways and exude love. Wow! I am gifted also to have picked up on you immediately. More than hugs & kisses, whatever that may be.
