Another painting of his.

Ruins Of East Martello Fort, Key West Florida
by Avery Fisher Johnson

In 1934-35 the Roosevelt Administration sent artists
to Key West. This was part of an effort to establish
Key West as a unique American Caribbean resort
and to create a new tourist based economy.
The Key West administration funded by the state
and federal governments sent out thousands
of these cards and books to promote the island.

Thanks again to HR9 4 the card
and of course to all of you who made
the attempt to guess. I never would
have identified Florida either.


It is their great coffee drinking

that gave one the admirable clarity.

And the fervent harmony of his style.

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

(1755 - 1826)
French Jurist and Gourmet

I missed all the guessing fun. But I never would have figured this out. You are always teaching us something over here.

dennis never would have guessed florida!

Florida has gone up in my estimation! You Know, in the UK Florida is the most popular US destination.Loads of Brits visit it because of Disney.More To It Than That, I Now See!

Tony, don't get too excited about Florida.

Beautiful, my friend.

Florida--the place to go is the St. Petersburg area--Tampa/Saint Pete. The Dali Museum is incredible, the beaches, and stay at the Don Caesar Hotel. my two cents.

Merle Sneed said...

Interesting. Florida was the last thing I thought of.

mary: Thanks to friends anyway.

dennis: It was a tough one.

tony: I haven't been to Florida since the 60s and although there may be some nice spots, it's not a destination I've ever thought about.

kurt: I agree although maybe for different reasons.

enemy: Thanks.

squirrel: I might be enticed to go to Florida for the museum, and some Cuban Coffee.

merle: How could anyone have really known. Nice artwork though.

Key West is a wonderful place. It can be as touristy or mysterious as you want. GREAT history and vibe. (Great ghost tour!)

Can't vouch for the rest of FL, but the Dali Museum in St. Pete is worth the airfare by itself. A religious experience!

Thank you for identifying it. I would never have guessed Key West. Beautiful images, too.

Coffee Messiah said...

hR9: Thanks for the info and the pics! Guess I'd go for the Cuban Coffee and the Dali museum.

diva: Who would've guessed.

Nice paintings. I especially like the top one, with the sailboat.
I'd never have guessed, either.

I spent a month in FL one time. Love the weather. It was 70 one day; they called it a cold snap and put on sweaters!
Now I learn there's a Dali museum in Tampa/St. Pete. Gotta go again! Someday.

decker: That's funny. When it's 50+ here they think it's cold. Anything over 35-40 is warm here to me. I wish we had explored Florida more when I was a kid and there then. It certainly wasn't anywhere near as crowded as now. Surely I too would travel to see the Dali Museum and get some Cuban Coffee.
