A familiar face in Coral Gables
En route from South Beach to the Everglades, we detoured through Coral Gables to visit The Biltmore Hotel. What a stunner! Vaulted ceilings, marble and travertine, hand-painted frescoes, lush greenery. This place was built to impress, and over time has built an interesting history. Which brings me to the reason we went in the first place: Peter's grandmother ("Mama Garson"), had told of a swimsuit contest she entered at The Biltmore in the 1930's. She recalled the unusual thing about this contest was that everyone wore rubber swimsuits! Well, in we walked, and there she was! A photograph of the event is on display in the lobby, and the caption reads: "Contestants for the Selection of Miss Florida. Miami Biltmore Pools. Sunday, March 3rd, 1935. Featuring U.S. Rubber Bathing Suits." Go Mama! #TheBiltmoreHotel #coralgables #garsonjasper
