Florida Photographic Collection

The Florida Photographic Collection is a nationally recognized component of the State Archives of Florida and contains over a million images, and over 6,000 movies and video tapes. Over 150,000 of the photographs are available through the web site.

“Featuring over 150,000 digitized photographs from the State Archives of Florida, the Florida Photographic Collection is the most complete online portrait of Florida available–one that draws its strength from family pictures, the homes of Floridians, their work, and their pastimes.”

The collection spans a wide range of visual images from copies of mid 15th century maps to current photographs. Topics of note are rocket launches from Cape Canaveral, Land Speed Record attempts on Daytona Beach (particularly the work of Richard LeSesne) and a vast number on holidaymaking.
