The Florida Citrus Postcard Collection highlights postcards collected by Brenda Eubanks Burnette, Donald Ball, Jerry Chicone and the Weaver Brothers, Brian and Richard. While postcards were originally intended to serve as souvenirs and keepsakes, now postcards help depict our history. This collection includes postcards from the early 1900’s including one of a farmer using oxen to haul citrus and real photo postcard of tourists visiting citrus groves. This collection also details the arrival of the railroad in Florida, packing houses, fruit stands, and how development has impacted the citrus community throughout the past century. We encourage feedback and are actively seeking additions to this collection.
