Synopsis: Quoted from the back cover: "Fifty years ago, three young workers in the Work Projects Administration captured twenty-four hours of Florida history in image, word, and voice. "Conchtown USA, a collection of folklore and photographs from that project, profiles the British Bahamians who migrated to the east coast of Florida between 1910 and 1920. Conch, the common name for a large sea snail, traditionally has been both a nickname and a good source for Bahamian fisherfolk. The Wilbur Roberts family and their friends, featured here, typify the seventy-five or so Conch families who settled in RIviera near West Palm Beach, Florida. Though a few remain in the community, now named Riviera Beach, their colony and their cultural heritage would soon vnish without this record. The book is divided into three parts: a folio of photographs made in 1939; profiles of the three WPA workers, the story of the photographs and of how the photographer tracked down his subjects fify years later; and the life-styles and folk-lore of the Conchs in Riviera and a historicl sketch of the people of the Bahama Islands. A soundsheet set into the book contains brief excerpts of impromptu singing by the Roberts fmily recorded in 1940 by Stetson Kennedy."
