The Sklar family home movies were donated to the Wolfson Archives in 1999. Not much is known about the Sklar family but their home movies provide a delightful snapshot of mid-century Miami.

From poolside sunbathers and diving performances at the Deauville (6701 Collins Ave.) who are joined by the likes of Frank Fontaine and Bobby Darin, to views of Collins Avenue and Biscayne Bay from the family’s hotel room. Other activities include visits to the Hialeah Park Race Track a boat trip around island homes, Venetian Causeway and Indian Creek Waterway.
