There's a rich history in Tampa and the casual visitor might miss it as he or she drives down Dale Mabry Highway away from Tampa International Airport. This fine collection brings together photographs taken by William Vernon "Red" Robertson, who was ably assisted by his colleague Harry Fresh. They worked together as the firm of Robertson and Fresh from 1932 to 1960, and over that time they collected thousands of high-quality images and negatives. The materials for this digital collection come from a large collection acquired by the late Hampton Dunn for use in his book "Tampa: A Pictorial History." The collection currently contains over 2,900 images, from photos of the Rebekah Assembly of Florida to early shots of the city's popular Gasparilla festival. Persons looking for specific items will appreciate the advanced search engine here as well.
