Accompanying note: "Florida experienced a land boom in the first half of the 1920s. Investors from across the nation purchased and sold land in the state to cash in on rising land prices. Most of this activity focused upon central and south Florida. Often, new subdivisions were created out of drained wetlands, revamped agricultural fields, and cleared forests. The Florida Real Estate Investment Corporation Properties, a firm based in Chicago that sold land in Tampa and Melbourne, was an example of these land speculators. The land boom ended in 1926 with that year's devastating hurricane, which struck Miami on 17 September."
This image represents a photographic real estate promotional picture for the Florida Real Estate Investment Corporation Properties from 1925. The photograph was used to sell lots in the subdivision Pinecrest Villa located just north of Tampa.
