This special find is a travel book about Florida, "The Land of Enchantment," with photography by G. W. Romer. It is 10 inches by 7 inches with over 27 double-sided, unnumbered pages, most with black and white photos.
Published by the Manhattan Post Card Publishing Company, Inc. of New York City, the copyright dates are 1933 and 1936, so this pictorial souvenir is probably from the 1930s or 1940s and before World War II.
Some of the photographs include palm trees, Bayfront Park in Miami, The China Clipper at Miami's International Airport (landing on the water), men with the sailfish they caught, Biscayne Boulevard in Miami, an aerial view of Miami, beaches, Vero Beach, flamingoes, Everglades, Daytona Beach, Braden Castle in Bradenton, Silver Springs ("mermaid"), Key West, the lighthouse at Key West, Orlando ("the heart of the citrus belt"), Lake Eola, a "typical country view showing a citrus grove near Tampa," Alligator Farms, Horseback Riding on the grounds of the Biltmore Hotel, the Floridian Hotel, and much more!
The front and back covers are mildly scuffed and yellowed with age and the binding shows some age, but is still very much intact. The pages inside are slightly yellow.
Included are some free vintage newsprint articles and maps from Florida that were found inside!
This paperback souvenir from Florida has colorized photos on the front and back, with the front photo showing an Airship (Blimp) in the background. This wonderful piece of pictorial history would be a great gift for the vintage travel lover!
