The City of Orlando Historic Preservation Board is seeking photographs for the 2013 Historic Preservation Calendar. This 2013 calendar will focus on the historic resources of the Lake Adair-Lake Concord Historic District, Orlando’s newest National Register of Historic Places District. The Historic Preservation Board is looking for black and white photography that captures the uniqueness and distinct styles of the Lake Adair-Lake Concord Historic District. Selected pictures will be included in the 2013 calendar.
The City of Orlando has produced the popular Historic Preservation Board Calendar since 1991 as a depiction of Orlando’s treasured historic resources. The Lake Adair-Lake Concord Historic District is a part of the College Park neighborhood. The district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior on December 30, 2011. The borders of the district are roughly Golfview Street to the north, Westmoreland Drive and Edgewater Drive the east, Peachtree Street to the south and Edgewater Court to the west. Please see the attached map for exact boundaries.
The Lake Adair-Lake Concord Historic District comprises more than one historical subdivision with the majority of plats filed in the 1920s as part of the Florida Land Boom. However, as a result of the bust of the real estate market in 1926-27, settlement remained scattered throughout the district during the late 1920s and into the 1930s. Construction of new residences resumed in the late 1930s and early 1940s as the economy recovered and relatively few vacant lots remained within the district by 1956. A variety of styles reflecting architectural trends from the early to mid-twentieth century are represented in the district including Bungalow, Colonial Revival, Contemporary, Craftsman, Dutch Colonial Revival, Folk Victorian, Frame Vernacular, French Eclectic, International, Italian Renaissance Revival, Masonry Vernacular, Mediterranean Revival, Minimal Traditional, Mission, Monterey, Neoclassical Revival, Prairie, Ranch, Split Level and Tudor Revival.
Up to three photographs, labeled on the back with name, daytime telephone number and the address of the subject must be submitted or postmarked by July 13, 2012 at 5 p.m.
Photographs must be black and white and printed on 8” x 10” or 8 ½” X 11” paper with a white border. Vertical or horizontal photographs are acceptable. The Board encourages photographs that capture the unique architectural characteristics of historic structures in the district. Please remember to be respectful of people and their property.
Deliver photographs to the Historic Preservation Office on the 6th floor of Orlando City Hall, 400 South Orange Avenue or mail them to the Historic Preservation Office, PO Box 4990, Orlando, Florida 32802. Submitted photographs become the property of the City of Orlando Historic Preservation Board for use in the annual calendar competition and associated promotions.
