Panama City (FL) (Postcard History)

Panama City began as three 640-acre homesteads in the late 1800s and was incorporated in 1909. The seat of Bay County, this thriving port city of nearly 156,000 is home to Tyndall Air Force Base and the Naval Coastal Systems Center. This volume contains more than 200 vintage postcard views of Panama City from its earliest years through the 1970s. Scenes of neighboring Panama City Beach include early beach institutions like the Hangout at Long Beach Resort, Jenkins Drive In, Mitties Tavern, and Little Birmingham. Those who remember the Fo’C’sle Grille at the Verde Mer Cottages in Laguna Beach deserve a gold star.

Whether you're a newcomer to the magic of Panama City Beach or you have a chest full of memories, this book is for you. Packed with pictures of a time that has passed by, this book lets us relive those moments. You'll enjoy seeing what used to be where and learning some of the history of the area. I bought one book and came back and bought two more for gifts. I'm anxiously awaiting the next J. D. Weeks book on Panama City Beach.

I'm really into photography and vintage items, so this book filled with all these old postcard photos was AWESOME!! I would definitely recommend this to anyone out there who shares my interests.

I lived on Long Beach Resort from around 1946-1948. We lived right across highway from where the Casino used to be. Our house was behind the old water tower. These pictures have brought back so many memories of that area. The area has changed so much since I was a little girl living there. The pictures really mean a lot to me trying to remember what it looked like back before all the condos and other changes.
