Vintage photos of life in Hyde Park through the 20th century


Established in the early 1880s after Florida railroad tycoon Henry B. Plant built the first bridge on Lafayette St. over the Hillsborough River (where Kennedy Boulevard now stands), Hyde Park has changed quite a bit over the last 100 or so years, but it still maintains plenty of the historic charm that makes it a unique spot to live and work. Thanks to the Florida State archives, we can take a look back at this iconic Tampa neighborhood over the last century.
