You can take the GRITS out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the GRITS!

Florida Before Cars, Crowds and the Mouse

An amazing little powerpoint my sister sent me.  I'd never seen these images before.  Beautiful stuff...makes me start daydreaming of what it must've been like back then.  I think I'd have loved it (except for those gawdawful dresses the women wore!)

I have no idea who created the powerpoint, but they did a great job.

That is incredible!!!
I would love to go back in time and experience old FL but then I think about reality and you know a lot of those people must have felt like they'd come to hell instead of paradise lol

Nice black and white photos from the past. Not sure I coulda dealt with the hordes of mosquitoes, disease, and be without A/C in the summer back then. Those pioneers were troopers.
