Scope and content
The collection contains the photographs by Annette and Rudi Rada from 1946 to 1974. Some of the 1940s photographs appear to be taken before they moved to Florida. The bulk of the collection, however, covers the 1952-1956 period in which he regularly photographed houses for both the Miami News and the Miami Herald. The collection contains both black and white, and color, negatives and prints, as well as color transparencies and slides. The collection specializes in architectural photographs, and commercial photography. There are, however, several trips, one to Cuba in 1951, and one to South America in 1969.
