This Is What Life In Florida Looked Like In The 1940s. WOW.

These stunning photos taken by the United States Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI) give us a glimpse of an interesting time in Florida’s history. With the nation still recovering from the Great Depression and entering the Second World War, it may have been a simpler time, but it surely wasn’t an easier time. The captions and dates have been provided below the photographs.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
