Amazing documentary shown on March 24, 1974 on Miami's WPLG-TV. Shocking look at South Beach at its dearth in 1974. Quotes: "Tourists don't come to South Beach" (true back then as tourists stayed upbeach). This is the first part of six - you can find the rest on Youtube with Momma Lives on Miami Beach. Very rare driveby footage of Ocean Ave hotels (first part) at their dearth in 1974. A decade later the slow takeoff roll had started.
