Fresh Slices of Old Florida

Many people don't know what old Florida was like so I want to show you all that's historic, beautiful, retro, kitschy and untamed. Much of it has changed now, but you can still be a part of the adventure if you look in the right places. I love writing about Florida and submissions are always welcomed.

Enjoy your stay in the F.L.A.

Just another work day in Florida.
Thanks to terribadterrier for pointing out that this picture is of Grissom, White and Chaffee training for Apollo 1. All three died in a training accident fire. I was unaware since the source did not give a heading to the image. I can’t imagine having the level of bravery these men had training for something so unknown to us at the time. Sadly they made the ultimate sacrifice.
