We’ve heard many stories about the old days on Miami Beach, when hotels allowed no blacks or Jews, and discrimination was up front and overt.
A recent postcard find brought that era home for Belle Isle Blog.
The discovery: a postcard from the 1940s for what is now Belle Isle Key Apartments, then Belle Isle Court.
Those apartments (still 120 one- and two-bedroom apartments, though its owner wants to build 180 units on the spot) were renovated Army barracks, and everything else on the island was an estate.
Never miss a local story.
On the card are the code words for discrimination in the era: “Restricted Clientele.”
