Lots of Americana at the Magic City auction


Went to the old Bertram Yacht location yesterday for the Magic City tv show auction. Bertram was used as the sound stage for the Friday night Startz show. Unfortunately, some of the sets were to be there but none were, but what made this more unique than the August Burn Notice auction was that the items here were really part of Americana in that they were actual antiques and relics from the 1950s. Classic cars were part of the mix, too.

That maroon car to the left, wasn't that the car used for James Caan's death scene? Didn't the car blow up and kill him? You can't see from the picture here, but it is all burned and damaged. The other cars have bullet holes and damaged windows.


 This is a setting from a restaurant in 1959 used in the show.
Who can forget these black dial phones? There were lots of items like this including typewriters, lamps, adding machines, things from the era. 

This is Lily Diamond's bedroom, the scene of the now famous shooing of Sam Diamond. Above it are the lit up 1959 numbers used in the New Years scene.(Not in Lily's bedroom, at a party at the hotel, the Mirimar Playa. 
45's from the era, there were lots for sale along with the larger albums.

There was lots of pool furniture for sale, all used as the setting for the Miramar Pool.

The Miramar Playa sign was popular, there were lots of signs and posters from scenes from the show, like Frank Sinatra's visit to perform and the DJ convention. And who can forget tv's like this, where you actually had to get up to change the channel and move the rabbit ears around to get a good picture?

There were bars from different scenes and lots of pictures and photos which lined the walls, suitcases, lamps and lots of furniture which was really nice from the 1950s; something a hipster in Wynwood might use today for their home.
