Recordings of past webinars:


  • The Golden Age of Florida's Miracle Strip: Panama City Beach, 1930s-1970
    The slideshow presentation features over 150 historic images of Panama City Beach from both the Archives' Florida Photographic Collection and the private collection of tourism historian Tim Hollis.
  • Tallahassee Democrat Collection
    This slideshow features images from the Tallahassee Democrat, many unpublished, showing scenes of Tallahassee life from the mid-1950s to 1969.
  • Archives Month
    The State Archives of Florida collects, maintains, and provides access to local and state government records, personal papers, photographs, and other materials.
  • Florida Winter Holidays
    Most of the nation considers Florida the escape from the cold winter weather. But for Florida residents, winter was a time of holidays, family celebrations, and–sometimes–cold weather.
  • Joseph Janney Steinmetz Slideshow
    Joseph Janney Steinmetz was a world-renowned commercial photographer whose images appeared in such publications as The Saturday Evening Post, Life, Look, Time, Holiday, Collier's, and Town & Country. His work has been referred to as “an American social history,” which documented diverse scenes of American life from affluent northeasterners to middle-class Floridians.
