This Month in Photo of the Day: City Pictures

In this Autochrome image from a January 1930 National Geographic story on Florida, colorful umbrellas shade members of an oceanfront club in Miami Beach. They "bathe in the blue, sunlit Gulf Stream," says the picture's caption, "and enjoy other healthful exercise when the northern resorts are icebound."
