This is an aerial view of downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida in 1978. Mirror Lake can be seen in the photo as well as the harbor off in the distance, which houses the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina. Located right in front of the marina are the Bayfront Tower Condominiums. An aerial view of Saint Petersburg taken today will show how much the city has been built up since 1978. There are many more businesses, hotels and condominiums that have been constructed in St. Petersburg over the past 34 years .
