    In an effort to preserve the City’s historical archives, in 2004 the City Clerk’s Office began cataloging each photograph by year and theme, then converting each to digital format, so that visitors and residents, as well as employees can enjoy the beauty and magic of Miami Beach in past years.  Today, the City’s archives contain more than 1,400 historical photographs, post-cards, documents and historical press clippings.

    If you are interested in donating photographs of Miami Beach in the early years, post cards or historical memorabilia to help build the City’s archives, please email digital images, with date and description of each document, or coordinate a visit to the City Clerk’s Office, 1700 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139. To learn more about this project, please call 305-673-7411 and ask for Liliam Hatfield.
