Hi,I am Ed Melo.
I have been living and working with tourists in MiamiDade county for many years now and I have seen everything and I know everything that the city has to offer.
One day, my best friend, showed me his collection of Miami postcards and pictures from early 20th century.
I was impressed, he had been collecting all these things for many years.
We came up with an idea.
To make a web site uniting my expertise about the county and his knowledge about collectibles.

We want to give you the best information about our city and show you how the county looked like in the beginning of the 20th century, in other words, we want to show you the past, the present and if possible the future of our city.

In our city there is a great variety to choose from between the pure anglian taste, the flavors of the Caribbean, the South American atmosphere and most exotic than it is possible to be imagined of the Eastern world.

MacArthur Causeway 1920

This is a postcard from 1920.
This highway was named MacArthur Causeway in 1942,after General Douglas MacArthur(He was a brilliant commander that fought in three major wars:World War I, World War II and Korean War).
It links downtown to South Beach and it passes over a few islands, including Watson Island, Palm Island, Hibiscus Island and Star Island.

MacArthur Causeway 1920

This is how the highway looks like today.
There is no need for a draw bridge anymore,now the bridge is high enough for the boats and ships to pass under it.
This picture is from the left side of the bridge.
