South Miami Beach, 1974...scenes from 'Momma lives on Miami Beach'

Below are clips from a 1974 WPLG, Channel 10 documentary called "Momma lives on Miami Beach."

It would be six more years before some of the people in this film would be terrorized by a wave of newly-arrived Mariel refugees.

And if any of those seen in the film lived another 10 years, they were probably forced out of their cheap, cramped apartments when investors bought many of South Beach's crumbling art deco buildings and turned them into trendy, boutique hotels.
