Florida History: Rio Vista Buy - Lots of Lots - 1921 Fort Lauderdale


This 1921 ad from the Fort Lauderdale Herald pitches the Rio Vista sub-division, today one of the city's  most beautiful neighborhoods. "Boost" or "booster" were the words of that day for promoting the city, which was entering a period of rapid growth.

I found your blog by doing a image search about the Fort lauderdale Coke plant that showed a group of historical buildings in the area. The quality was poor to not be able to read the caption in the original picture, but I cannot located it in your blog page. Maybe it was part of the book that is available?
