An historic look at Sarasota County

If it’s too wet or too hot some day soon, take a comfy meander through the archives of the Sarasota news, courtesy of Google News.

You never know what you might find… like this “look back” on Sarasota history, written in 1925!

Reading the newspaper 1925In the same issue, they remarked on “Old Landmark Doomed”… see if you can guess which, before you click over to the paper…

Or look up the day you were born. The day before I was (not every issue of the paper is available), Sweetheart Soap was 2 cakes for 17 cents, lemons were 25 cents a dozen, and roasting hens were 49 cents a pound.
