September 16, 1928


479286While doing some research on the internet this afternoon I came across photos of Lake Worth after the 1928 hurricane.  It has been a mild hurricane season so far and there has also been talk about what happens if non-conforming buildings get damaged, so I thought I would post this little reminder of how bad things can get.

I would imagine this is Lake or Lucerne.

I believe that the Masonic Temple in the photo is 1000 Lake.
