This is a mural on a downtown building. It depicts the history of Fort Lauderdale. I enlarged the image and stared at it for some time. I am left with the conclusion, we really don't have much of a history when compared to many of the CDP cities. There really is nothing on this mural dating back more than 100 years. That is the extent of our "modern history." On reflection, the most significant thing to take place here in the last 80-90 years was a little movie called, Where The Boys Are. Had it not been for that, we might still be a small town. It wasn't much of a movie but it sure brought a lot of young people here.
