This lovely vintage postcard was mailed from North Miami Beach April 4, 1959. The stamp has been removed. It was sent to Miss Elva Durie, Lakeview Avenue, Clarkson, Ont. Canada. It reads:
Spending three weeks in Miami. Got fed up with the long cold winter so took off for the South. Weather perfect. Regards, Marion
Goodness, this place does look like it has delightful accommodations. Love the decorative iron on the balcony. Love the sign. Love it all. I understand being fed up with the long cold winter and heading to Miami for three weeks. I feel that way myself, roughly from October through April.
This history on the City of Mississauga has some photos and information on Elva Durie (pages 109 and 120), as does this (pages 64,84 and 90) . The Durie family had a store and merchant bank. The Golden Beach no longer stands, and it is a shame.
