Hint: This Little Bit of Paradise Is Completely Gone

New, 13 comments

Welcome to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Miami and its past!

This was one of Greater Miami's early swimming spots, where wealthy vacationers came to relax in the sun, play sports like golf and polo, watch speedboat races, and the like. Now it's completely obliterated, covered over by, well... that would give it away, wouldn't it? The picture was taken in the '30s, but this pool, and whatever it was for, was built before then. Can you name the location of this palm tree-ladden spot?
