Orlando Centennial 1875-1975 / Pocket History of Orlando Florida

Notes inside front cover:

The  Pocket History of Orlando Florida  brings you a thumbnail sketch of Orlando’s fascinating history, in word and through pictorial views of a nostalgic past. 

Its goal is to stimulate an interest in the City’s history, to take care that necessary changes do not outrun improvement to see that progress is not only productive, but prudent and well-balanced.

The brief sketches herein are from E. H. Gore’s History of Orlando (1949), now out of print, and William Fremont Blackman’s History of Orange county, Florida (1927), recently reprinted.
