The photographs rescued from an eBay scrapbook, were taken between 1912 and 1922. They illustrate the barrenness and beauty of coastal Palm Beach County as it was a century ago.

The images depict the lush tropical wilderness and romantic cocoanut groves that were once Ocean Ridge, Manalapan, Hypoluxo Island, Lantana and Lake Worth. Many of the images have accompanying hand written descriptions.

father was A. Romyn Pierson, II, who purchased all of the land on the east side of the Florida East Coast Canal (today’s Intracoastal Waterway), north of the South Lake Worth (Boynton) Inlet to Lantana Road as a gift for his wife Leila.

About Artists With Autism:

Our mission is to educate aspiring artists on the autism spectrum
about business skills and social skills through the arts. We strive
to reach this goal by promoting their artistic talents through the
concept of micro-enterprising, provide opportunities to show
and sell their art, in which to create independence, foster self-
confidence, and offer encouragement and hope to their families.
