This is part of a Fort Lauderdale postcard pack and wasn’t mailed.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nixon Smiley has collected a series of informative essays of various historical markers in Florida history. Each is very well written and most provide a very good back story to the points in history. I wish he had more details not otherwise found in so many other volumes, but I’m not sure how unique this book was when this book was…
It’s ‘Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day’ and Trilby, the baby alligator, takes his Virginia Creeper down the road.
This is St. James Catholic Cathedral in Orlando that is still standing in the same spot and looks nearly identical now as it did in the postcard above.
New Courtney Campbell Trail
Tampa Bay Florida
This portion of the Courtney Campbell Trail flanks the south side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway (Fl. State Route 60) between Tampa and Clearwater.
It’s National Dance Day and here is Trilby, the baby alligator, and Zuber, the cat, tapping their way across the stage at Ruth Eckerd Hall, a wonderful place to see a show or concert!
Here’s the Bretton Inn that was once in Ormond Beach. The postcard was mailed January 30th, 1914.
