A second deep-dive into the “other” history of St. Petersburg – the winsome, the wonderful and yes, even the weird people, places and things that made the Sunshine City such a unique place to live in the 20th Century.

“St. Pete’s early reputation as a resort town and the subsequent marketing campaigns that promoted our region and city’s sunny climate may lead some to overlook just how rich and textured our history is. Bill DeYoung gets it, and he’s captured it time and again.”
