For decades, Palm Beach has been considered the ultimate winter resort, the philanthropic center of the country and among the most prestigious residential communities in the world. Epic wealth, fabled denizens and members of high society, legendary architecture, meticulous grooming and superb geographic coordinates endow Palm Beach with unparalled allure.
Palm Beach Then and Now provides a chronology in three sections of the island's development from an unchartered wilderness to a winter resort, to community and finally to the posh year-round residential destination it has become.
This sumptuous compilation of historic and contemporary photographs, along with personal memories shared by longtime residents merged with factual material, offers insight and an insider's view of what Palm Beach used to be like, how it has changed and what it is like today.
