I love these Images of America books. They just drip with nostalgia. This is about the 5-star Florida resorts of the late 19th century. The most amazing photo is that of the swimming pool in St. Augustine's Alcazar hotel, where one could swim among beautiful stone columns. (The pool is dry now, alas.)
