City Beautiful explores a day at the Venetian Pool in the City of Coral Gables in South Florida.
Built in 1925 by George Merrick in the architectural Mediterranean Revival style, the city served to be, “a gateway to Latin America”. The city is peppered with lush green avenues punctuated by embellished buildings that aim to create harmony with the environment.
