By the late nineteenth century, the city of Tallahassee was a vibrant cultural center of the South. Through changing fortunes, Tallahassee has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens.
With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book, Historic Photos of Tallahassee, Andrew N. Edel provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Tallahassee. Remembering Tallahassee captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the Adams-Onis treaty to the 1905 Buckman Act, the accreditation of Florida A&M to the construction of Dale Mabry Air Field, Remembering Tallahassee follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. It captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than 100 historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
