Product Description:
Known for its pleasant climate and inviting gulf coast waters, St. Petersburg, Florida, has always attracted sun-seekers in search of their own piece of paradise. As with many Florida cities nestled next to the Gulf of Mexico, St. Petersburg has experienced growth and change that has left few reminders of the once easy-going lifestyle that defined the city. Featuring a collection of stunning images, this evocative new book harkens back to those enchanting days.

As early as 1905, the city of St. Petersburg began creating postcards to attract not only tourists, but also business-minded individuals seeking an opportunity to take part in the area’s growth. Depicting the area’s beloved beaches and other sources of natural beauty, as well as a number of local businesses, these surviving postcards offer a glimpse of St. Petersburg in a golden age that is often forgotten.

St. Petersburg, Florida: A Visual History, by St. Petersburg resident Wynelle Deese revisits a treasured time in St. Petersburg’s past through the vintage postcards of this fascinating Florida destination. The images depicted in these postcards allow readers to travel back to the St. Petersburg of the early twentieth century and relive the early innocence of the Sunshine City.

Product Description:
Florida is one of the most visited places in the world, and one of its most visited cities is St. Petersburg. But there's a lot more to the "Sunshine City" than pristine beaches. During his travels to sunny St. Pete, James Brown discovered local jazz artist LeRoy Flemmings Jr. Doc Webb's World's Most Unusual Drug Store attracted customers and spectators from afar. Babe Ruth's longest home run ever was launched from the city. William Straub had a great vision for the area's treasured waterfront park system, and the historic Vinoy Hotel was instrumental in launching the downtown renaissance. City historian Will Michaels explores a wide swath of hidden history in one of Florida's largest cities.

Central West Florida Backroads Travel: Day Trips Off The Beaten Path: Towns, Beaches, Historic Sites, Wineries, Attractions (FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL GUIDES Book 6)
 
Product Description:

CENTRAL WEST FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL takes you off the Interstate Highways and onto the quieter roads that defined this region in earlier years. Millions of people visit Central West Florida every year and never really see it. Everything looks pretty much the same from Interstate 4, Interstate 75 or the Suncoast Parkway. The same old billboards, gas stations, chain restaurants and tacky tourist traps call out to you as you speed along. This guide will rescue you from interstate monotony and take you off the beaten path to what is called Old Florida. This part of our fast growing state is still a place of serenity, natural wonders and historic places. The guide is organized into several different sections so you can browse what you’d like at your convenience.


Several historic Central West Florida towns are profiled including Arcadia, Bradenton, Cortez, Dade City, Englewood, Homosassa, Plant City, Sarasota, St Petersburg, Tampa and Venice. The history of each town is discussed and photos are shown along with an antique postcard now and then. If a town has a good restaurant, the guide will mention it along with some favorite lodging choices.


Although Central West Florida is noted for its major cities - Tampa, Sarasota and St. Petersburg - the area is also famous for white sand beaches, vast agricultural lands and older quieter tourist attractions. This guide will show you where the best ones are. You will also learn about several Florida State Parks. These parks are quiet treasures that will make your visit even more interesting.


Florida heritage and history are important parts of the culture of Central West Florida. The guide tells you about festivals, including art shows, and gives you times and places so you can enjoy them during your visit. You will also find a list of all Central West Florida heritage sites, and will learn about the interesting history of this part of Florida.


Last but not least, CENTRAL WEST FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL has a section on Florida day trips. You will be given recommended driving routes along with maps to help you enjoy your wanderings around this interesting region of Florida.


The guide is written by Mike Miller, a 50 plus year resident of Florida. Mike is a graduate civil engineer from the University of Florida and has traveled all over the state on both business and pleasure. He writes for and publishes his own website, Florida-Backroads-Travel.com. Much of the material from this guide is from the website.

Product Description:
Commerce, tourism, recreation, and even the quest for eternal youth were the primary incentives for building piers along St. Petersburg's downtown waterfront as early as 1854. For more than 160 years, developers and entrepreneurs pushed wooden or concrete structures from the shoreline to the deeper waters of Tampa Bay. Railroads were behind the early development, allowing cargo loads to be transferred from ship to rail with the least amount of effort. A large and profitable fishing industry evolved. Electrically powered trolley cars shuttled tourists to and from cruise ships. Promoters built bathhouses, spas, and bait houses to entice locals and visitors, and casino gathering halls of various, often controversial, styles were proposed, built, destroyed, loved, and detested. Competing piers were built only 10 feet apart. Mother Nature's elements, including a hurricane, and politics ravaged most of the remaining structures.
