I found this brochure at an estate sale recently. It features marketing and promotions for Orlando, Winter Park, Maitland and Central Florida, circa 1961. Lots of good stuff. It’s also a good reference guide to¬†Orlando in the 1960s. Click below for more. As always, click the image for a larger version.

Morrison’s Cafeterias were still around Florida ten or fifteen years ago, until they were bought out by Piccadilly. I’ll admit, I always liked Piccadilly better.

  1. Great brochure – I remember some of these places advertised – Chastain’s Restaurant on page 21 had a 15×15 glass enclosed room in the parking lot where you could go up into and dine for everyone to see.
