We’d like to welcome the State Archives of Florida to the Commons on Flickr! The 5 set collection is an initial offering from the
central repository of the archives of the state government of Florida and the images included in the Commons are a sampling available at the Archives through the Florida Memory Project.

The collection showcases Florida’s people, ranging from members of the All-American Professional Girls Baseball team to Florida’s Seminole Indians, as well as places and events. The collection also contains glass lantern slides depicting many different geographical areas of Florida as well as the surviving glass negatives of noted portrait photographer Alvan S. Harper.

Thanks for your comments, notes and tags!
