Rainbow Springs, Florida. Narration is by boat captain Manning "Skipper" Lockett recorded at the Florida Folk Festival in 1956. He was reciting his glass-windowed submarine tour guide speech from when Rainbow Springs had been a privately owned tourist attraction between the 1930s and 1970s. Now the spring is a state park. Much of this video is of the property surrounding the springs. Ruins of the old tourist attraction can still be seen, such as the zoo cages, the waterfalls and run-down gardens which are now being replaced with native species of plants. The audio from this video can be downloaded for free at floridamemory.com.
