MaEx links to Beth Dunlop’s writeup of the unappealing new South Beach lifeguard stands. Here is the one I photographed last year, and here they are under construction.

    There are zillions of them on flickr, but maybe someone has a link to a particularly iconic set?

    Hey dudes! Just read the Herald piece- it has pictures of the old ones on a slide section

    Try this: flickr search for ‘lifeguard, miami’. I also found two sets, but neither is quite what I had in mind, and they mix old and new. Ah well…

    There are two good designs that won the design competition from a couple of years ago and they are ready-to-roll. The problem is that public works in the city is locked into these designs as the perfect compromise between lifeguard needs, (many of them are complaining), and hurricane survivablity. So, it will be difficult to adapt the designs from the competition.
