This is a booklet of various reflections from city residents about the early history of Winter Park, Florida, published by Rollins Press in 1982. In the words of Editor Hope Strong Jr.:

Unless one is irrevocably committed to the joys of the Big Apple style of living, the stories and pictures in this little book are bound to warm the heart. The vignettes submitted by so many loving friends of Winter Park go a long way towards broadening knowledge of our earlier days, and greater appreciation of our present-day "City of Homes." "Tales of Winter Park" was not intended to be, first and foremost, an historical document - but of course it is chock-a-block with "history". For those whose appetites have been whetted, further delving into the files of the Winter Park Historical Association, the Winter Park Library, Rollins College, and the Orange County Historical Society will result in guaranteed pleasure and edification.
