Melbourne A Century of MemoriesMelbourne A Century of Memories by Melbourne Chamber of Commerce

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is part of my Swampy’s Florida book collection:

This is a wonderful selection of columns telling of the history of Melbourne and surrounding area. Lots of great first hand stories and tales and Florida history. All involve interviews with Florida natives and other very long term residences. The writing is very good and photographs illustrate all of the entries.

The unfortunate part is that this book is out of print and very hard to find. Also should be noted is that the book came out in 1980 and the columns were written throughout the 1970s. So, the history time frame is prior to the ’70s.
Bottom line: I highly recommend this book for the Florida history lover or those that like to read about people’s lives.
