Courtney Campbell Causeway (Davis Causeway) circa 1934


This 1934 photo is courtesy of Gus Muench, who you might remember as the champion of Cockroach Bay. He’s still trying to get that little slice of Old Florida protected. Here’s a message he sent with the photo:

My whole family fished from this bridge in the 40’s and never got hit by cars. Today, you would be dead in 2 minutes after walking out on the original Davis Causeway Bridge now Courtney Campbell. If we can’t understand how future growth¬†in boating will destroy Tampa Bay seagrasses; it’s because our heads are buried in the sand … and that’s sad!
