Hot Button Issues

Read Time: 2 mins

Buttons that had a saying or a political statement were a very popular item to wear in the 1970’s – 1990’s. Courtesy of the Kinerk-Wilhelm Collection shown are photographs of a collection of buttons that were hot topic issues in South Beach during those years. Included in their button collection are: a pink “Preservation Power” button, “I (Heart) Art Deco & I Vote” button, “Save Our Senator” button, “History Does Not Stop at 6th Street” button, “MDPL” with an Art Deco logo button and a “Respect The Revere Hotel; Miami Beach Built 1950” button.

What would Miami Beach be like without Historic Art Deco, Mediterranean, and MiMo buildings?
