THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE This Miami airport Photograph by Clifton Adams WHERE PASSENGERS TAKE THE AIR is modern in every respect, with restaurant, customs, Public Health, Depart ment of Agriculture, and other Government offices. FEW WORLD CITIES GREW WITH MORE MAGIC SPEED THAN MIAMI Indians camped where Miami now stands, and in the uprising of the early thirties whites built a fort here; but the railway, in 1896, made the city. Since 1920 its population has grown by 550 per cent. First Avenue and Flagler Street in 1888, as shown above, is indeed a far cry from the towering structures that one sees there to-day.
