Very nice book !

The pictures were excellent but not enough research went into the stories behind the pictures. The author should have hunted down and interviewed some "oldtimers" in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach for a much more interesting view of the two towns long ago. The book would have meant more to the natives of the two towns.
