Jacksonville, Florida

THE NEW METROPOLIS

THE GATEWAY TO FLORIDA

AND

THE WEST INDIES

ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING CITIES IN AMERICA

Beautiful drives, palatial homes, magnificent public buildings, marvelous artesian well water supply.

The Most Successfully Operated

MUNICIPAL ELECTRIC LIGHT PLANT in AMERICA

A progressive and up-to-date Board of Trade, which has been a potent factor in the upbuilding of Jacksonville, and the wonderful civic spirit evidence on all sides.

Our lecture tour of the city and its suburbs is interesting, instructive and free from time-worn and facetious jokes

COUNTRY TRIP

To MANDARIN

The Home of the Late

Harriet Beecher Stowe

and ORANGE GROVES

Since the great freeze of 1898 no effort has been made to raise oranges in Jacksonville, the nearest grove at Mandarin.

To satisfy an increasing demand for a trip into the country to a typical

FLORIDA ORANGE GROVE

we have provided a magnificent six-cylinder, sixty-horsepower Pierce Arrow Touring Car. This is by the far the most luxirious sight-seeing auto ever put on the road.

This trip starts from the United Cigar Store daily at 10 A.M. and 2 P.M., crossing the St. Johns River, giving a magnificent water front view of the city, passing through South Jacksonville and beautiful Florida Jungle of moss covered live oaks, magnolias and semi-tropical foliage.

A 32-mile ride over excellent shell roads to the little town of Mandarin, and the site of the home of the authoress of Uncle Tom's Cabin.
