Overview

Inviting beaches, scenic vistas, magnificent architecture, and a fascinating history have made Palm Beach one of America’s premier tourist destinations. Beginning with Henry Flagler’s construction of railroads, and the Royal Poinciana and The Breakers luxury hotels in the late 1800s, the county has been a beacon for vacationers seeking escape from everyday life and winter weather for more than one hundred years. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Palm Beach County, Seth H. Bramson provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of the area. Remembering Palm Beach presents the story of this popular section of Florida, told through vivid black-and-white photographs carefully selected from the finest archives. The images in these pages show how the region grew from “almost a wilderness” to become a place where beachfront property is coveted.
