Square quarto, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 206 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket.

Among numerous subjects key to the city's past are an early Mirror Lake, the Detroit Hotell, the Million Dollar Pier, the Snell Arcade, shuffleboard courts, Albert Whitted Airport, the Aquarium, Festival of States parades, the Orange Belt Railway, Roser Park, and of course, the famous green benches. In stunning, black-and-white photography, this handsome coffee-table book details the historical growth of St. Petersburg from its early days up to recent times. Spanning two centuries and nearly 200 images, the book follows the building of this history-rich city, offering a compelling look into the past for any longtime resident and every history buff of St. Petersburg.

Historians Mary Louise Ellis and William Warren Rogers and photographic archivst Joan Perry Morris reminds us, “there must be a cognizance and appreciation of our past,” and in Favored Land they have portrayed an area aware of its heritage, alert to the needs of the present, and prepared to meet the challenges of the future.

As originally designated, it covered all the country from Cape Florida to the Chesapeake and westward to unkonwn limits. Its romantic and eventful history extends over a period of nearly four hundred years, embracing as well expeditions for the discovery of gold and precious stones as for the propagation of the Christian faith among a savage nation, or as a refuge from religious persecution. Occupied by colonies from the European countries at different times, it has been the scene of wars, massacres, and contentions between French, Spanish, English, and Americans, as well as continual conflicts with the savage races which once inhabited it, a remnant of whom still remains within its southern borders...
