Newly Discovered Photos!



Two photos of Winecoff fire victim Laura Miranda have been discovered! Winecoff Fire reader Gail Williams made the find. These photos, taken in 1944 at a marina near Lake Jackson, have been among her family's effects for all these years.

In 1946 Laura Miranda worked as a beautician in the Loew's Grand Theater Building, across Peachtree Street from the Winecoff Hotel. She was scheduled to report for work early Saturday morning so she elected to take a room in the Winecoff on Friday night rather than take an early trolley into town. She was in room 826. Laura Miranda was thirty six years old at the time of the tragic fire. Gail Williams asks that the descendants of Laura Miranda be made aware of the find.

My Mom is the Daughter of Laura Miranda, a fire victim of this tragedy. My Mom is in hospice and I was looking for anything I could find on her beautiful Mom.
