2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Manny Hernandez HALL OF FAME on May 12, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As the author states in the preface, few of the folks that have visited Orlando for tourism have actually seen the city (most people stay only in the theme parks area, which is a good drive away from the City Beautiful's downtown area). Therefore, a photographic document that shows images from the city dating back to the 1850s when it first appeared on the map may come in as a pleasant surprise for many.

Like the other "Historic Photos of" books, the book is broken down by time periods that have a particular theme. Starting with a span between 1868 and 1908 that shows street shots that resemble Deadwood and crocodile-domesticating "Crackers" (the closest thing to an Orlandoan cowboy there ever was), the book extends all the way up to the Theme Park days in the seventies, even showing shots of Walt Disney himself within months of his death, before he was able to see his Walt Disney World dream come true.

Though those that have come to O-Town as tourists may get a kick out of the book, I feel it will be more worth the time of locals or those (like us) who have chosen to make it our home.
