Downtown Miami Burdines Christmas display - (circa 1950s)

Spectators watch the 'World's Largest Santa,' 65 feet in height, and a 70-foot 
Christmas tree during the formal lighting ceremony in Miami on
night, Nov. 23, 1950.
Synchronized to music, the display is lighted by more than a mile 

of multi-colored neon tubes. The tribute to the forthcoming Holiday, 
erected on the pedestrian bridge over Miami Avenue, was witnessed 
by a crowd estimated at 10,000.

Miami Avenue, 1954.
