The images collected in Historic Photos of St. Petersburg combine to form a remarkable portrait of this unique community. 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.

From Preface: The name of Florida is one of the oldest connected with the discovery of America. It appears on the earliest maps known, sometimes as a great island and sometimes as a headland. It was visited and taken possession of for the Spanish crown within twenty years of the first landing of Columbus at San Salvador, and is the oldest settled portion of the United States. 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...

Octavo, paperbound (stapled stiff tan illus. wrappers), 110 pp. Fine (As New). A permanent record of nearly 500 years of significant maps depicting Florida. From Introduction: The early perceptions of the shape of Florida arose from personal observations, heresay, or descriptions written in a diary or log...Bearing these conditions in mind one is often amazed at the accuracy with which the Florida peninsula is depicted on early maps...In this exhibition we are trying to demonstrate some of the various perceptions of the shape of Florida and the Caribbean as depicted at various times by various mapmakers...We have accumulated, for the first time in recent memory and in numbers hertofore unmatched, examples of some of the finest maps in the world showing Florida as a peninsula (the Cantino Planisphere of 1502). The latest is a Lansat (satellite) image...We have tried to use photocopies or facsimilies only where the map was a first or demonstrated some important historical fact, and an original is not available...Many of the maps were chosen for their sheer beauty, some for their inaccuracies and most for their historic interest. An effort has been made to represent as many mapmakers as possible, and as wide a variety of styles and methods of production as possible...
