This is Miami Beach. To the left is the Algiers Hotel that st Between 25th and 26th street on Collins Avenue. The Algiers facade was designed, as many structures were in Miami Beach, by Morris Lapidus. The architect of the entire structure was Henry Hohauser. The Algiers opened in 1952 and demolished in the early ’80s. This postcard wasn’t mailed, so there is no postmark, but it appears to be from around 1965. What do you all think?
