This is a promotional booklet for The (first) Seminole hotel. Not only does it describe the hotel in great detail, including a diagram and layout of each of the hotel's floors, but it also gives an early history of Winter Park with vintage photographs of the town.
A detailed account of the view from the top of The Seminole (page 25) is fascinating to read. The text describes a birds-eye view of the town of Winter Park, its lakes and its buildings before the turn of the century.
This booklet can be accurately dated by referencing the 1888-9 calendar for Rollins College on page 19.
