Overview

In less than one hundred years, Fort Lauderdale grew from a wilderness stagecoach stop and trading post to become one of America's favorite tourist destinations and the seat of government for Florida's second-most-populous county.
With a selection of fine historic images from her best-selling book Historic Photos of Fort Lauderdale, Susan Gillis provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of this remarkable city. Remembering Fort Lauderdale captures the story of that remarkable growth, through vivid black-and-white photographs carefully selected from the finest collections. From the days of wooden stores and empty beaches to the era of high-rises and Spring Break crowds, through hurricanes, wars, and times of boom and bust, Remembering Fort Lauderdale tells the story of the "Venice of America," presented in a unique collection of never-to-be-forgotten images.
