Delray Beach as described in 1939 [1]

Delray Beach, settled in 1901, is a tourist resort and the center of an area producing beans, peppers, tomatoes, sugar cane and citrus fruit. Many Michigan farmers of German ancestry have bought farms in the vicinity.

On Atlantic Avenue is Delray Country Club and Golf Course. City Park provides picnic and recreation grounds. Municipal Beach, at the foot of Atlantic Avenue, offers surf bathing and fishing.
