The stiltville

This collection of houses built on stilts are located a mile offshore from the Cape Florida lighthouse on Key Biscayne. They were built in the 30s. In its glory days, there were 27 structures lined up on Biscayne Channel and some others nearby… Stiltsville started as a place with its own rules and to enjoy some time on the water: bait shops, speakeasies, homes and gambling halls. Today, there are currently 7 stiltsville houses in total within the boundaries of Biscayne National Park. Each one has a sponsor that keeps them in good condition. I print this collection of pictures on archival cotton paper and it is presented in square format, in a handmade teak wooden frame.
