LAKELAND, FL PUBLIC LIBRARY CONTENTdm Website

About this collection

This collection contains a variety of booster and promotional material from a host of sources intended to "sell" the City of Lakeland, Florida to tourists, businesses, and visitors in the days before the internet and cell phone "apps."  Included are flyers, pamphlets, brochures, and other types of publications intended to lure people to Lakeland, "opportunity's year round playground," as one publication described the city.

The publications come from several different sources, including the city itself, the Chamber of Commerce, the local Board of Trade, and private booster organizations. They describe a Lakeland of a bygone era and reflect the unbridled optimism of a simpler time.
