The Fontainebleau Hotel is one of Miami Beach's most significant buildings, a curving white whale now emblematic of the area's cornerless and color-sapped Art Deco period. Curbed National just uncovered a trove of old photos from 1955, a year after the Morris Lapidus-designed megastructure opened to the public. On view: acres of lounge chairs, curving pools, and glitzed-out foyers, so have a look. [Curbed National]
