Selling Sunshine at Winter Garden Heritage Foundation

We visited the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation this evening for a short talk and exhibit about “Selling Sunshine“, the promotion of Florida and especially of citrus crops – mostly in the past since the business is disappearing these days (after all, we live where once were citrus groves!)

Some very interesting “posters” mostly magazine adverts from many years ago; it’s clear that claims made then would not be acceptable today!

A small display of advertising “trinkets” from days past, too:
