Summary:     This collection contains various promotional publications and brochures dealing with the sugar cane industry in Hendry and Palm Beach Counties and real estate development in Citrus and Martin Counties.  These publications date from Florida's boom period in the 1920s and serve as clever advertising to lure people and industry to "tropical, seashore Florida."
    Included are promotional brochures on Olympia-Picture City (Martin County) and Citrus County; a pictorial supplement to the Homosassa Herald of the Citrus County area; and newspapers which chronicle Florida's development in the 1920s.  There are also a number of sugar industry publications which trace the development of celotex (used in the refining process) and of the Southern Sugar Company at Clewiston (Palm Beach County), which proposed to cultivate land in the Everglades for growing sugar cane. Finally, the collection contains promotional material of the Florida Land Trust, which was formed in 1926 in Chicago for the acquisition of land and for the industrial and agricultural development of natural resources.
