Bandshell in Bayfront Park, Miami, Florida

Here is an interesting article titled “Caesar LaMonaca: A Remembrance of the Bayfront Park Band Shell Concerts, 1929-1977” about the bandshell with what looks like the photograph that this postcard is based on.

Treasure Chest Thursday – Postcards from Great-Grandma

I have a few postcards that my Great-Grandma Mae Johnson wrote to my mother during the winter of 1959 when Mae and her husband Alfred traveled to Florida for their annual trip.  These are truly a treasure to me.  I never knew Mae and never heard her voice, but reading these postcards helps me to hear her.  I will post one a week for the next several weeks on Treasure Chest Thursday.
