I liked it quite a bit, at any rate.
Edit: Reader "Jason" correctly points out that the map dates from 1925 (not 1935 as I had first reported), and tries to illustrate projected growth by 1935.
Looks like there's some number-fudging going on, though, with their current  estimates, and maybe some wild and optimistic speculation for their future  estimates. Their decennial numbers for 1920 are spot-on at 29,571. Their "ToDay"  figures claim 225,000 but were actually a third of that, and Miami fell short of the 1935 projection of a million people by about 870,000 people.
[No shame, though; I'm from St Louis -- a town that practically invented (and continues to refine) the whole "Ambitious and Bold Future Census Prediction that Looks Embarassing in Hindsight" idiom.]
The six-page report thumbnailed above is a probably a pretty alright read for Miami history buffs, and can be downloaded here as a 680kb PDF. Thanks a ton, Jason, for spotting the error and bringing it to my attention. I'm glad to get the opportunity to correct mistakes.
