Success F l a shback FOREVER FLAGLER Traffic aside, I think we can all agree which era of our magnificent metropolis we’d rather reside in. Flagler Street, known in this photo from 1900 as Twelfth, has been a thoroughfare of our singularly saucy city since its inception. Note the horse hackneys (a steal in this ingenuous era of pre-punishing insurance premiums) and many multi-storied businesses, proving that though the original fledgling Flagler Street proves a bit tame by modern Miami standards, the heretofore rustic road has always been of premium importance to our city’s prosperity; — RYA N JA R R E LL Before photo courtesy of the Ernest Gearhart Collection, HistoryMiami Museum After photo Marcelo Araica 28
