Octavo, softbound (slick, sepia-tone photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Florida in the late 1800s was a paradise waiting to be discovered. During this period, two visionary tycoons of the Gilded Age set out on separate ventures that would transform the Sunshine State from the America's last frontier into a destination for the rich and famous. The grand hotels that Henry M. Flagler and Henry B. Plant opened at their planned resort sites offered a fantasy stay surrounded by all the accoutrements expected by sophisticated, Gilded Age patrons. Florida's Grand Hotels from the Gilded Age provides a look at these magnificent structures during their glory years, along with the fashionable entertainment and social and recreational pastimes that engaged their gilded guests.

Octavo, paperbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine (As New).

Their leader miraculously recovered, as the story goes, and the trib returned each year to the place where large rocks surrounded the healing spring. The natural beauty of the barrier island that became Indian Rocks Beach was what attracted Harvey hendrick to establish his homestead here in the mid-1890s. Year's later, he recalled, “I liked the place, I thought it was the most beautiful place on God's green footstool, and I think so yet.” The charm and character of this little seaside community is evident in these historic photographs, from the days when the old swing bridge was the center of activity, to the booming post-World War II era when tourists and residents proclaimed Indian Rocks Beach as their special place...
