There are a certain number of you who live in the colder states who, for one reason or another >aIr
be- !
will come South this winter. There are several very good reasons for this annual migration to the South cilia- Iiub

that occurs every Fall and Winter. The most important of these are ill health/ a desire to pass the

cold winter months in a warmer climate, or you wish an opportunity to enjoy sport you are not ableto ,'gin- ,+

enjoy during the winter months in the North, such as golf and fishing, or finally you have reached la lub,e '
that stage In life where you can live where living is easier and more comfortable. t cedon
tf ik

When people think of the South, their thoughts turn naturally to Florida, but Florida is large licejo'f

and there are many places for you to go there. But if it is climate you are seeking, come to South

Florida; and if you decide to come to South Florida, Englewood invites you to come and set what 'she

has to offer.
31xher
Englewood is not a city, it is only a small village on Lemon Bay, so, if you are looking for ,

what the large city has to offer, do not come here. But, if you wish warm climate, good hunting and .ewill '

fishing, reasonable rents, comfortable living conditions, an opportunity to play golf, and to live on the le",ted

most beautiful bay in Florida, and Florida has many of them, come to Englewood.Here ke:.

the climate is warm and even, and there is no rain in the winter season; here the fishing is lOP.31ft Ib

of the best, fish of all kinds abound in both bay and gulf; and for those who like game fishing, the Tar- 1ler'lre ;

pon grounds are right off Englewood, and in their season the silver kings are found in great schools. of

Lemon Bay is a mile wide, opposite Englewood, and extends for ten miles down the coast, and

is separated from the Gulf by only a narrow key. A good golf links may be found a few miles away. I

Fresh vegetables. and strawberries may !be obtained all winter. Also, for those who enjoy hunting, quailare

very abundant during the open season. And there are schools, churches and stores nearby. '

Thus, Englewood, to'miles south of Venice, has these things to offer you; a warm climate, iffJin'-
I
good hunting and fishing, reasonable rents, comfortable living conditions, an opportunity to play golf, Y

and good roads leading in :11 directions, to all parts of the state. What better place could you find to eilnel ens-, f
r
spend the winter months? L'ri'JEr
