- Mortal remains of victims of the 1935 hurricane being cremated - Snake Creek, Florida
- After the big storm, active Army units were assigned to search the shoreline, tidal creeks, and other likely areas where bodies might have been blown or washed up in the final stages of the hurricane. The boxes being burned are actually makeshift caskets, containing the victims' bodies. Over 250 veterans were thus cremated on the banks of Snake Creek, between Islamorada and Tavernier.
