This digital library showcases stereoscopic views from the late 19th and early 20th centuries depicting locations around Florida. The cards capture a time in American history when Florida experienced tremendous growth in industry, development, tourism, and agriculture. Many of the cards serve to entice visitors and record the natural beauty and wonder of this unique geographic area. The stereographs are housed in the the collections of the Helen Ellerbe Library at the Matheson History Museum in Gainesville, Florida. In addition to stereographs, this collection includes texts related to the history and development of the state. These texts are often complementary resources to the scenes and descriptions on the stereograph cards and include a mixture of travelogues, histories, and government documents.
