Hayden Island, 1973

The east end of Hayden Island is shown in this 1973 aerial photo where it meets Tomahawk Island, now joined together. Tomahawk Island was once named Sand Island and was the site of the Lotus Isle amusement park referenced in yesterday’s post. The pilings at bottom center are remnants of the bridge that joined Lotus Isle with Faloma and carried the streetcar.
