Parker is a community shaded by live oaks on St. Andrews Bay in the Florida Panhandle, and its history dates back to the early 1800s. This pictorial treasure celebrates the community's heritage, people, places, and events in a variety of vintage photographs that bring to life the birth and growth of this once nameless, sleepy fishing village. Highlighted in this volume are unique images of the early settlers and their descendants; fishing and boat building; the Parker School and the community's churches; the Paper Mill and Tyndall Air Force Base; and treasured pastimes and events.
