The 1920s was a time of unprecedented growth in the nation's oldest city. Fueled by a land boom that began in South Florida, St. Augustine was inundated with land speculators and new subdivisions. The city floated a million-dollar bond issue to construct the Bridge of Lions, and D.P. Davis filled in a marshland to build the magnificent subdivision of Davis Shores. A new coastal highway linked the town with beaches to the north and south and opened up St. Augustine's beautiful shoreline for development. All of this activity halted when the land boom collapsed in the late 1920s. St. Augustine in the Roaring Twenties details the roller-coaster events of the city in this exciting decade.
