Wish You Were Here
A rare view of the interior of the hotel. This is the Writing Room where guest can write letters and postcards to the folks back home.
The window to the right looks out over the piazza and Lake Worth. The "doorway" at the end of the room is actually a mirror. The camera is visible just outside the doorway (north end of the room.) A portion of a rotunda wall is visible behind the camera. Click to enlarge.

Note the alligator motif of the flower vase! Click to enlarge.
What better image to send home to friends and family in the frozen North? The pier stood just at the south side of the Breakers and served as the area's first port.
