Description


South Beach and Miami Beach, Florida, have dozens of whimsical, colorful, and sometimes wacky lifeguard stands that have become media stars in their own right, including the Lighthouse Guardhouse, the Surfboard, and the Putting Green Guardhouse. In 64 brilliant color photos, these amazing stands and the dazzling scenery surrounding them are beautifully portrayed. Manned by a cadre of professional lifeguards, these stations have become a famous backdrop for the fun-filled life on the sands and in the seas, as swimmers, boaters, para-sailors, and sun-seekers flock to the beaches with their cameras and their sunscreen. \nEngaging text provides the history of these colorful and fanciful lifeguard stands, and designed in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew, and again after the storms of 2005. The lifeguard stands currently on the beach and those lost in years past are all presented and preserved in this wonderful book.
