Winter Park Brochure
Continuing my research on the real estate aspect of Winter Park and trying to find some relation to the Winter Park Land CO. has been pretty difficult. I have been searching around in the archives and have found a lot of useful information but now I am looking to find book with more information surrounding Winter Park so I can find more substantial information rather then just articles or brochures for my research. Although I am now trying to expand my resources outside the archives this week I did find a really interesting brochure on Winter Park. It is interesting to me to see how they portray the residential living through their brochures to their tourists. Winter Park is described as a Florida Utopia and a place where there is southern climate with a northern atmosphere. It really emphasizes the Spanish and Mediterranean style houses. From reading through this brochure from the 50’s it seems that Winter Park really grew into a beautiful place not only to visit but to establish a home. All in all my experience researching this topic thus far has been interesting to me and I am looking forward to expanding my research further.
