“Golf – Miami Biltmore Hotel” by K. Manahan
The prestigious Biltmore Hotel opened in 1926, and its tower was the tallest building in Florida at the time. It boasted the largest pool in the world, and the golf course (Johnny Weissmuller was the resident pro) was designed by the legendary Donald Ross, whose 600 golf courses established the nascent golf industry in the US.
This extremely rare poster likely was created to promote the hotel as the Depression took hold in 1931. A classic in every sense.
We are thrilled to have this new acquisition in our summer travel poster show!
