a gallery of images depicting the serene beauty of lake platt, florida

This gallery is dedicated to the Robles girls who grew up here on Lake Platt in Tampa, Florida: Mary Louise Smith, Ruth Meares and Maurine McTyre. The property was homesteaded by their parents John Horace Robles and Mattie Platt Robles. Except for a few short years in the ’40s Mary lived her entire life on the lake. All images were taken on or from the property and no gallery of Lake Platt is complete without the resident sand hill cranes.
