This volume records, through carefully chosen quality images, the development of historic Bartow from its origins as an outpost in the interior of a wild state to a respected county seat at the end of the twentieth century. Drawn from the State Archives of Florida, these photographs take you back to earlier days when wooden buildings lined the rutted dirt streets and the railroads hauled citrus and other crops to market. Revisit the scenes from the "City of Oaks and Azaleas" that you know so well, or experience them for the first time. 101 Glimpses of Bartow offers an intimate glimpse into the rich history of one of Florida's best-kept secrets.
