A trip back to the 1930s


A readers sent this in she must have been reading my mind, I was trying to explain this exact scene to my cousins last weekend. It shows Pan Am in the 1930s right behind Miami City Hall, which was the Pan Am terminal back then.

From the YouTube write-up: "Excerpt from a family film showing two Pan American Airways Service Clippers, a Sikorsky S-40 and a Sikorsky S-42 landing and berthed at the Pan American terminal on Dinner Key, Miami, Florida.  Also glimpsed: A Loehning 'shoe.' "

That is a wonderful archival film of the historical significance of Dinner Key’s Pan Am Terminal.
All the more reason to celebrate it as a museum and move Miami City Hall to the MRC Building where they belong.

Nothing says paradise like two or three acres of black top tarmac and several hundred gallons of aviation fuel.
