Ghosts: The Lost Architectural Heritage of Miami

by Scott Weber

From the 19th century FIRE insurance maps I can identify the exact location of many
of the original buildings.  In other words I am photographing places that are no longer
in existence. To create a sense of what is not there I use excerpts from written account journals entries, and diaries to describe what you can’t see.
