Bootleggers flooded Florida with illegal booze, flappers danced to jazz, and workers erected the first elaborate Art Deco buildings in Florida in the 1920s. At the same time, Mediterranean fruit flies attacked citrus groves and the state’s brutal convict-leasing program ensnared thousands. Join the Tampa Bay History Center's Brad Massey for a look at these happenings and others that catapulted Florida into the modern era in the 1920s.
