Rare map showing the borders of Miami in 1920 and 1925, and its proposed expansion by 1935. The city is divided into a grid of squares and shaded in orange, yellow, and pink to denote its annexations. Various districts are labeled, such as Coral Cables, Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, Hialeah, and Hollywood; the main roads are also depicted.

A table in the lower right corner documents “How Miami Has Grown” in terms of population, area, buildings and assessed valuation of real estate. The statistics demonstrate the remarkably rapid rate of growth, from a small town of 5,470 people in 1910, to 29,571 in 1920, to 225,000 in 1926, with the population projected to reach 1,000,000 when expansion was completed in 1935.
