The Miami Herald Building’s Alpha & Omega

Curbed Miami got an insider’s tour of the recently-vacated, soon-to-be-demolished Miami Herald Building and recorded the visit with a memorable photo gallery/memento mori.

Sean McCaughan has photographed the Herald Building at, or very near, its end; WTVJ’s news photogs were on the scene at its very beginning. Among the events they covered before the paint was dry: The building’s 1961 topping-off ceremony, witnessed by publisher John Knight and managing editor George Beebe (pictured) and recorded in the clip above.
