Dodge News Magazine 1968

This is the May 1968 issue of Dodge News, a magazine once distributed to Dodge car and truck owners.

The article is about treasure hunting off the coast of Florida. Many ships from the earliest Spanish Colonial era all the way through modern times foundered and sunk from the Keys east and north through Miami, and up to Vero Beach and Sebastian. The article was written and photographed by George X. Sand.

So many ships were sunk and treasures found from Jupiter Inlet north to Sebastian Inlet that the area is known as the Treasure Coast.

I’ve included the short article on the swimsuits because the images are interesting and when doing research on dating Florida documents, an understanding of swimsuit designs and when they’re in fashion is useful. Few articles of clothing evolved as quickly as women’s swimsuits in the 20th century.
