Mangel’s was a women’s department store with various locations across the country. Miami just so happened to be one of those cities with a location at 130 E. Flagler Street.
The “before” photo shows a glamorous storefront with the Mangel’s neon lights adoring a very inviting store congruent to the appeal of the 1940’s.
And in the “after” photo you’ll see the same building with quite a bit of deterioration and a less glamorous feel with its current use as a perfume store.
If you look closely, both buildings to the left and right of Mangel’s still exist today.
