Miami Beach Dog Track

MDPL archival postcard of Miami Beach Dog Track circa 1930’s-1940’s. Located at the southern tip of South Beach on 1st and Ocean Drive, it brought an exciting cosmopolitan spark to Miami Beach and a seedy element as well.  From 1926 until its final demise in 1980, the Dog Track was a favorite among many locale gamblers and visitors alike. Currently in that space, is one of the beach’s most luxurious condominiums, The Portofino.
