Municipal Auditorium (ca 1930). An aerial view overlooking the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium. The street running through the left side of the photograph is US-41/Tamiami Trail in its early days. One of the unique features of this structure is the barrel-vaulted roof, a collaboration between architects Thomas Reed Martin and Clarence A. Martin and project engineer Freeman H. Horton. This space was and continues to be used as a site for social, business, and promotional gatherings. -- Chelsey Lucas
