At BelleIsleBlog, we’re really getting into this history stuff. We live on this great island, walking distance from great restaurants, the beach, shopping on Lincoln Road and the craziest people watching in the world.
Buy we live in high-rise condos, overlooking the Bay and and towers of this urban Beach playground. We’re just loving these looks into our not-too-distant past. Above, a photo from city archives on Belle Isle in 1940. At that time, there was a bridge between Miami Beach and the island, and some estates, but not much else. We’re throwing in the 1937 postcard of the bridge from Belle Isle to Miami Beach, and a today shot to bring it all home.
