description:  Silver Springs, billed as "Florida's Original Tourist Attraction," is a 350-acre nature theme park surrounding the headwaters of the Silver River, the largest artesian spring in the world.  An unparalleled boom in Florida tourism following WWII, was part in thanks to the marketing techniques of Bruce Mozert, who took a number of underwater images depicting everyday life.  This book displays these beautiful photos and gives a history of the area.

"Lightheartedly fun, this book is a quick, pleasant read the invites nostalgia for a perceived innocence of an earlier time in Florida."-Lelie Hammond, chief curator, Appleton Museum of Art.
