Wordless Wednesday: 1926 Miami Hurricane Dead

The Pittsburgh Press posted a revised listing of the dead after a hurricane hit land in Florida in 1926.

This hurricane is commonly known as the Great Miami Hurricane.  At a time when Miami and Dade County were experiencing a land boom, the hurricane wrought great devastation to the area and to the local economy.

Close to 400 people are known to have perished in the storm.

Ahh, genealogy.  Looking for names in the sands of time gone past.
