Alternative Title

Passion Flower & Bird of Paradise Postcard


Sarasota (Fla.)


A postcard depicting pictures of a passion flower and bird-of-paradise, two tropical flowers found in Florida. These two particular flowers were photographed at Sarasota Jungle Gardens, located at 3701 Bay Shore Road in Sarasota, Florida. In 1936, the attraction opened upon what was a banana grove the decade before, until David Breed Lindsay began developing a botanical garden. Sarasota Jungle Gardens was sold to the Allyn family in the late 1940s and is still in operation today.

This postcard is part of a collection of postcards kept by Lucile Campbell, a schoolteacher in Sanford, Florida, for 30 years. In 1931, she took advantage of a special rate for teachers and sailed to Europe, where she traveled for several months and is thought to have acquired many of these postcards. During the 1940-1941 school year, Campbell taught at Sanford Grammar School. Before her retirement in 1970, she taught at many other area schools, including the Oviedo School, Westside Grammar School, and Pinecrest Elementary School. Campbell used these postcards as aids in her classrooms to teach advanced subjects, such as Shakespearean drama. The collection, along with her other teaching aids, papers, and photographs, was later found at Sanford Grammar School after it became the University of Central Florida's Public History Center. Campbell's postcard collection and photographs provide insight into the life of a respected Florida educator.
