Flashback Monday: Just like Venice -- but which one?

Continuing our tour of exciting Lake Anne developments, here is an early aerial photo of an eerily deserted Inlet Cluster, before either a) people started moving in or b) the invention of the automobile. Unlike Waterview Cluster, which was described as a charming French fishing village (no -- really), Inlet Cluster was purportedly reminiscent of Venice, with model names including "The Venetian." Who knows -- maybe just like in the Italian city, the homes are slowly sinking into Lake Anne. Otherwise, it looks more like Venice, California, following a neutron bomb that obliterated all the cars and people but left the buildings standing. But hey -- happy Monday!

  1. Weirder still, where are all the gondolas?
