From Arcadia Publishing:
From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art.

Father and son authors Brian Weaver and Richard Weaver have put together more than 150 postcards to create a visual record of Florida's citrus industry. As you flip through these pages, you will learn more about the oranges and grapefruit that grace millions of breakfast tables each morning, as well as the people whose hard work goes into getting that fruit from the tree to the plate. Blended with personal reminiscences, this fascinating history provides readers with a guided tour of the groves, packing houses, and juice plants in the heart of one of Florida's most important industries.

By Brian Weaver and Richard Weaver, ISBN 978-0-7385-0302-8, copyright 1999
