The courtroom, which had several famous trials including one involving 1920s Chicago gangster Al Capone, was restored closely to its original 1920s splendor. Court Room 6-1 now ranks as one of the finest examples of a restored courtroom in the U.S.A.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We applaud Judge Silverman and all those involved for insisting on accurately recreating the courtroom's appearance during its existence in the 1920s and 30s. This involved the details usually overlooked such as the use of bracket or wall mounted electric fans, which Courtroom 6-1 originally had and Judge Silverman was adamant about using them once again.

 

 

 

The citizens of Miami can be proud of their courtroom knowing that it accurately represents the legal history of the city of Miami, the State of Florida and the United States of America. Thank you for allowing Vintage Fans to participate in this endeavor.
