Description

St. Augustine encapsulates nearly 500 years of fascinating history. This historic town, established along Florida's northeast coast in 1565, is the oldest city in America. Its Old World atmosphere is present everywhere. Numerous narrow streets flanked by crumbling walls, gardens, coquina buildings, and over-hanging balconies provide the necessary ingredients for a bona fide old Spanish city.\nOver 300 vintage hand-tinted postcards from the 1900s through the 1950s take readers on a visual tour. Visit many early Spanish homes, stop at the magnificent Ponce de Leon Hotel, stroll picturesque and romantic streets, explore the oldest fort in America, and tour an Alligator Farm. Witness some of the events and places that have made St. Augustine one of the most interesting cities in America. Together, the words and images comprise a perfect historical keepsake of this memorable city.
