The Canal at Curtis James Estate in Cocoanut Grove, Florida

The Canal at Curtis James Estate in Cocoanut Grove, Florida

This image shows a canal that is part of the Arthur Curtiss James estate. The canal channel is defined by a concrete wall that rises well above the waterline. The ground level is at the top of the retaining wall, and the area is planted with palm trees and flowering plants. The canal provides access to Biscayne Bay. A biplane is flying over the canal. The biplane appears to be an Aeromarine 75, a type of flying boat that was also known as the Felixstowe F5L.
