The Seminole Bridge was the original link to Clearwater Beach. Completed in 1917, the wooden bridge opened up access to the beach and paved the way for its first development. The bridge terminated where the Palm Pavilion stands today. It became known as the "Rickety Bridge" because the unforgiving Florida sun warped the boards, popping out the nails at either end. Automobiles would "clippity-clop" along at a slow, noisy pace. A turnstile allowed boats to pass through. The bridge's lifespan was cut short, in part, by the hurricane of '21 and, finally, by the completion of Memorial Causeway in 1926.
