1925 photo looking north through the Miami Springs Circle with the Clune/Stadnik building still under construction in the background with temporary scaffolding next to it. It also shows the Hialeah First State Bank to the left(Apple Dental Group now occupies that corner.), the bridge across the Miami Canal with downtown Hialeah on the other side, & the Curtiss Bright Administration building behind & to the right of the Clune/Stadnik building.
We zoomed into the photo and highlighted some of the beautiful features of the original Circle as envisioned by Glenn Curtiss. The Circle had a low rise wall (murito) with custom planters and plants. It also had beautiful custom light poles. Not too tall. Not too short. We would pay a premium to have something like this installed today. Of course, the most notable item is the original adobe styled bandstand at the center of the Circle. While most of us grew up in Miami Springs with the current Gazebo we have today, the original Circle had a large adobe styled bandstand at the center of the Circle. The bandstand looks amazing and would be something we should seriously consider reintroducing to the Circle should we ever decide to replace the Gazebo.
