SST Aviation Center Exhibit in Kissimmee, Florida

Kissimmee in 1971

This video features plenty of old Kissimmee, from the Seaboard Coast Line depot on Dakin Avenue, to scenes of Broadway, but my favorite is the interview with Irlo Bronson, Sr., one of the few recordings of him that I've seen. While I grew up with his son's family, I never met the elder Mr. Bronson. Anyway, a great look at Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista and Windermere in the months prior to the opening of Walt Disney World.

 

If you remember Central Florida towns before Disney of saw something that brought back memories in this video, please leave a comment below. Thank you!
