From concrete dinosaurs of Bongoland and the Citrus Hall of Fame, to underwater scenery of Silver Springs and alligators of Gatorland, 1950s Florida had something to offer every native and visitor. Over 400 vintage postcards take readers on a journey back in time to tour throughout Florida, showcasing the state's most famous roadside attractions. Tour the historic Gamble Mansion, walk through the picturesque gardens of Gerbing's Gardens, see the jumping dolphins at Marineland, visit the Seminole Indian Village at Musa Isle, and listen to talking parrots at Parrot Jungle. All the wonderful, whimsical sites you visited as a child, or that your grandparents reminisce about, are found in an alphabetical exploration starting with Africa USA and winding up at Zorayda Castle.
