Overview

By the late nineteenth century, the city of Jacksonville was a vibrant cultural center on Florida’s Atlantic coast. Through changing fortunes, Jacksonville has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from her bestselling book Historic Photos of Jacksonville, Carolyn Williams provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Jacksonville. Remembering Jacksonville captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the earliest days to the recent past, Remembering Jacksonville follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes as depicted in more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
