BigGuyB... The song was written in 1924, in the midst of the land boom in Florida -- real estate values shot up from 2X to 10X higher between 1920 and 1925. So much was being built that the railroads reached full capacity and stopped carrying building materials to Florida in October 1925. Prices kept going up until the following Spring. That's when they crashed initially falling more than a third between February and June, 1926. Then prices fell a half, then two thirds to 95% by the middle of the initial bottom in 1928. Prices bounced back up a bit in 1929, then fell from where they were in 1929, another 50% to 90% lower during the Depression.

Some land bought around Miami in 1925 didn't sell at a higher price until the 1980's.

While Big Boy was running, the Marx Brothers musical, The Cocoanuts, opened up. In the play Groucho talks about the real estate crash:  "You can have any kind of a home you want. You can even get stucco. Oh, how you can get stuck-oh!"
1920sfa... This peppy tune featuring an impressive Jolson on vocal was outstanding. Thank you very much for sharing!
John Oc... Hi Grzegorz, Catchy tune. Jolson is always entertaning. I was living near Miami back in 1949 (13 yrs old} and it was beautiful and exciting place to be. Unfortunately that has changed. It's now a place to avoid.
Luis M... His voice was young and fresh then. Even when I can't understand every word of it, I enjoy the lyrics when sung in its entirety, verse and refrain chorus. That 1925 Miami was a much better place to live and stay in than it is now, I bet. This is another beautiful kind of homesick song that fits well with Jolson's unique, passionate, zestful style. He always tells a story!
Terry L... Great posting
