Al Capone visits Miami for the first time and comments on the weather....
"Miami's climate is more healthful than Chicago's and warmer than California - that's why I'm here."...and the real estate market....
"I believe now is the time to buy down here and I'm thinking of going into the market rather heavily. I don't believe there will be any sensational climb in values [...] for five years, but I'm contented to wait that long."
From the Miami Daily News, Jan. 10, 1928.
