A photographic history about Boca Raton’s most glamorous era using rare photographs found in the collections of the Society. Features 200 photos and other graphics including seldom seen images of the current Boca Raton Resort & Club and other historic structures.
A “tear-out” postcard booklet compiled from the BRHS’s unique photographic collection. It contains 15 black and white postcards which can be removed from the booklet and used for mailing, framing, or simply enjoyed as a book. Many images are actual reproductions of historic postcards of Boca Raton scenes such as the Boca Raton Club and downtown Boca Raton ca. 1950. In addition, charming images from Boca Raton’s pioneer era capture a much simpler Boca Raton - hard to imagine with twenty-first century eyes.
Join architectural historian Donald Curl as he chronicles thehistoric landmark that opened in 1926 as a small inn on Lake Boca Raton andhas since become the city's most exclusive destination.
