A Clean City,
Orlando is a clean city. Its population is cosmopolitan and
progressive. It is situated in the heart of the Florida Peninsula,
in the center of the popular orange and pineapple belt. It is sur-
rounded by a country admirably adapted to vegetable farming,
dairying and small fruit growing. It is a region of charming lakes
and lovely country homes.
ORANGE AVENUE, LOOKING NORTH.
The spirit of improvement and progress is abroad in the city
and surrounding country. New homes are being made and old
ones are being improved. Farming and residence property is
advancing in value, and the population is increasing through ac-
cessions from the states lying further north.
If you contemplate a trip to the South, put Orlando down as
your objective point.
