Mike, that paper has two other interesting finds.

The First is the re-opening of the Fotosho which had been torn down and rebuilt that year on the same spot. The second is the ad for the Cameo in Allapattah which I had never heard of.

The Riviera mentioned in the copy was in Homestead.

The Biscayne Plaza closed in 1951. It was renamed Plaza when Wometco took it over in 1935.

A note for anyone trying to find this location on a map —“Biscayne Street” in Miami Beach has been renamed “South Point Drive.”

I assume they renamed it so it wouldn’t conflict with “Biscayne Blvd” over in Miami.
