The History of Gainesville Told Through Historic Photographs
Home to the University of Florida, the second largest university in the United States, Gainesville reflects a progressive and hearty spirit, with a rich culture that lies at the foundations of its present-day prosperity and allure.
With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by Steve Rajtar, Historic Photos of Gainesville rediscovers the state’s fascinating past through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Florida State Archives, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.
From Alachua Avenue and the University of Florida to Roper Park and the White House Hotel, Gainesville shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.
“The photos have the same relevance as the study of history itself. What we see around us today didn’t just spring up in its present appearance. Today’s buildings, cities, and everything else is the result of evolution over years and centuries. By viewing the historical photos, one can see how the evolution has progressed,”
Historic Photos of Gainesville is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of the great cities, pivotal events, and legendary figures across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
