Florida Memory Project

Take a look at the online photographs, exhibits, audio and video clips from the Florida Memory Project.  The Division of Library and Information Services of the FL Department of State has posted a wealth of information from the archives for Floridians to see.  It’s a true treasure trove of Floridiana.

Here’s a clip of alligator wrestling from the Ross Allen Reptile Institute.  Remember that?
