My gosh I'd love to see the Coconut Grove building in a daytime shot. This art deco collector/fan is in heaven looking at that feast for the eyes!! It's sad to know that by the 50's/60's the deco style was so "dated" that the majority of facades in the style were removed, or in the case of my local area, refaced in aluminum coverings. The wrought iron work, stone work, neon.....there's just very little of it left to see today. frown

Much larger inside than I would've expected from what we can see of the outside....pretty cavernous space! It certainly has the tropical look, haha. Thanks for posting the additional pics you have of it.
