    Cocoanut Dreams

    An exhibit of 30 black and white, sepia, and hand tinted photographic images circa 1922 by photographer A. Romyn Pierson, III. 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.

    By historians and authors, Janet DeVries and Ginger Pedersen
