Millions of Miami Deco photos and I picked this one because on my trip to South Florida a couple of years ago, this is the sort of charming 1930s apartment building I really got into.
Buildings in Tallahassee, FL. -Wendy
Some photos of Art Deco buildings in Downtown Tallahassee: the George Firestone building (built in 1936) and the Bloxham Annex.
Old Morocco Building, Jackson, Florida
Most buildings built this type of “Moroccan” or “Moorish” style were theaters or, as the original name of this building seems to indicate (see below) Masonic temples of some sort, like the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, which for many years was both a movie theater and the local Shriners HQ.
Also known as the Powell Building and Morocco Temple, this was the only convention center in Jacksonville until the old train station was turned into the Prime Osborne. It’s also one of many buildings that Henry James Klutho designed for the city. He did a shit-ton of buildings for them after the great fire of 1901.
