On the banks of its namesake river, the community of Toms River was first settled in the early 1700s by loggers drawn to the dense forests by the side of the water. During the Revolution, the growing village was a constant thorn in the side of the British, and was attacked and borned in 1783. The arrival of the railroad in the late 1800s ushered in an age of expansion

Maritime Historian Edward A. Mueller has compiled a fascinating visual account of the steamboat era in northern Florida. With images that document both the remarkable vessels and the people who spent much of their lives on the St. Johns and Ocklawaha Rivers, this pictorial journey tells the story of a time that has long passed, when travel and trade were dictated by the river's flow.
