Another Venetian Island history lesson — in plates

1958 Venetian Causeway resident toll emblem

Your Belle Isle Blog is a sucker for old stuff, and here’s the proof: A 1958 Venetian Causeway resident’s toll plate, which is what you got as an annual pass for the causeway before they installed the C-pass system.

Thanks to Josh in Nine Island, who gave us the heads up to the eBay auction. The last time your blog saw vintage memorabilia this exciting, it plunged $4.50 through PayPal to buy this great postcard.  If you want to stroll down memory lane, you can do that here and here.
