The "Season" of  1942 went into full swing in Fort Lauderdale, despite the war, blackouts and ships being torpedoed off the Atlantic coast. The Fort Lauderdale Times frequently advertised  things to do in the area for recreation: a ride on the "Good Ship" Jungle Queen (still operating), horse back riding, boating, drinking ... and more as posted in the ad below.
