Vintage Tampa Book Signing

Celebrate the 1950s in Tampa with Author John Cinchett’s pictorial treasure ‘Vintage Tampa Signs and Scenes’.

Meet Author John Cinchett signing copies of his book ‘Vintage Tampa Signs and Scenes’.  Mr. Cinchett’s book celebrates life in Tampa during the 1950s with over 150 never-before-seen historic photos featuring downtown shopping scenes, diners, drive-ins, nightclubs and many well-known local hangouts of those glorious days.  Longtime Tampa residents will fondly remember the many local stores and shops.  The photos in the book are from The Cinchett Collection, which is a historic collection of Tampa photos taken by the Cinchett Neon Sign Company, which was Tampa’s most well-known during the 1950s, lighting up the streets of the city with extraordinary elaborate animated neon creations.  They captured these street scenes taking photos and now local historians agree that this is one of the rarest collections of historic Tampa photos ever discovered.  All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Bahamas Hurricane Relief Effort through Catholic Relief Services.
