The X-Ray Clinic served as the office of Dr. Samuel H. Johnson, South Florida's first African-American radiologist. At the time of construction, Johnson built his clinic because black residents were not allowed to use the x-ray facilities at Miami's City Hospital. A mechanical drawing instructor at Booker T. Washington High School, identified only as “Mr. Barker,” created the plans for this small Streamline Moderne building.
