No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality. Fifth Printing------- Originally published in the 70's, this book gives an overview of the history of the Florida Keys through 1950. The first section is a summarized history, which calls out important names and dates and historical events. It describes life in the Keys and really drives home the point that many of the Keys were very sparsely inhabited. ----------- The book also shows the attempts to build a railroad across the islands and the subsequent move to building a highway instead. The second section is made up of pictures with detailed captions that show a pictorial history of the same events.
