  • This film tells the story of Pinellas County breaking away from Hillsborough County and developing its own government, industry and style. There is a nice sequence of an old car and land sale, followed by scenes of diving in Tarpon Springs. The film also shows Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the Sunshine Skyway. Homes, neighborhoods, shopping areas, schools and industries are shown. The narration has an odd meter. Produced by Nationwide Pictures and H.K. Carrington; sponsored by Pinellas Industry Council.
