This beautiful book's pictures - from funny to quirky to insightful - really work well to humanize history and give legends like "The Barefoot Mailman" to the orgins of the yearly holiday parade faces, names and dates.

Some of the pictures even have handwritten notations on them, again serving to connect the reader to the history. The captions that accompany each picture helps to solidify the significance of the photograph, and is kept brief enough to keep the reader skimming page after page.

No one knows what tomorrow may bring, but one thing is for sure, we owe a debt of gratitude to Rev. Gill and Janet DeVries for a well written history. The photos and their descriptions are treasures which will be cherished by our citizens of the community for years to come.

This book of captivating images and relevant descriptions was like going back in history. I have fond memories of Boynton Beach from the early 1980's and now I have new appreciation for the community and its history. I especially enjoyed the chapter on farming and the images from the early 1900's.

This my hometown. My father was the mayor at one time (in the 40's). Everybody knew everybody so I was surprised not to see anymore people I knew.
