Historian: Cori Convertito Ph.D.
Join our Curator & Historian Cori Convertito for a nostalgic visual tour of Florida Keys’ history from the Gilded Age to the 1970s through beautiful vintage postcards. Florida’s vistas, beaches, landmarks, tourist attractions, hotels, wildlife, palm trees, and more are preserved through these tourist mementos which provide an important visual record. Travel the length of the archipelago for a unique look at Florida’s history as tourism became the main economic engine of Florida.
This event is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida, with additional support provided by The Helmerich Trust and Comedy Key West.
