Florida history archive chronicles Belle Isle, Venetian Causeway

As part of the Belle Isle Blog's continuing exploration of Belle Isle and Venetian Causeway historical images, we found a treasure: the Florida Memory Project, a state of Florida archive that includes a collection of 170,000 digitized photos of the state's early times from the Florida Division of Library and Information Services.

The archive provides an even closer look at early Belle Isle (pre-condo) and the construction and development of the Venetian Islands and Miami Beach.
