Description

Pensacola is a city of firsts, from the first documented European settlement in North America to the first Naval Aviation training station. From its earliest incarnation as a town of unpaved streets, through the devastating fire of 1880 to the modern city it would become, this Florida city thrives on challenges. Historic Photos of Pensacola captures the history of Pensacola from the Civil War through the 1960s in nearly 200 black-and-white archival photographs. Author Jacquelyn Tracy Wilson, a fifth-generation Pensacola native, captures the spirit of Pensacola--from the commonplace to the quintessential--in a century-long journey through this beautiful town.
