The city of Hollywood "By-the-Sea" was incorporated in 1925 and planned in large part by Joseph W. Young Jr. who built a boardwalk, hotels and a casino in order to draw interest to the beachfront, where he was selling house lots. The name "Hollywood "By-the-Sea" was meant to both capitalize on the 1920s craze for Hollywood, California, and to differentiate this development from Young's other development endeavor, Hollywood "In the Hills" which was in New York state. Hollywood by the Sea was damaged severely in the 1926 hurricane.

This unique map features the city limits, streest, golf links, and Hollywood Beach prominently, and is dated to three years after the official incorporation of Hollywood-by-the-Sea as a city and two years after the city's first major hurricane.
