From early hand-colored cards to photographic views in both color and black and white, this extensive collection of postcards yields a unique glimpse of Ormond Beach, Florida, during the first half of the twentieth century.

Through the pictures, you'll travel on the picturesque Tomoka River, ride a horse and attend an auto race on the beach racecourse, visit the winter home of John D. Rockefeller and the site of a 240 year-old Rum Distillery, pick oranges in beautiful citrus groves, stop at the Ormond Hotel, and stroll the banks of the Halifax River.

Over 230 postcardsmany both rare and valuableportray the people, street views, hotels, parks, race cars, residences, churches, gardens, and boat trips of this special place. Many of the buildings portrayed were subsequently demolished. The captions go well beyond simply describing the scenes, they offer little-known details of Ormond Beachs local social history and lore.

This book will be treasured by both long-time and new residents of the city and visitors, and be welcomed by postcard collectors world-wide. Approximate dates and values of the postcards make this a thorough reference of these historic treasures.
