Vintage Miami Parade Photos

One of my last and coolest finds from this year's WLGS was this suede-covered souvenir photo album from Miami, Florida.

It was stuffed with photos and "real photo" postcards from the Miami area as well as somewhere in New England (judging from the 5-foot snowfall in several of the images).

The photos span from the 1910s to--I'd guess--the early '40s and many of the postcards are addressed to a "Mrs. Grace Hammond."

My favorite photos show parade floats bedecked in coconuts and giant paper-mache dragons.

Here's a few of the highlights:
