Description

The lots located at 110-114 South Sanford Avenue in Georgetown, an historic African-American neighborhood in Sanford, Florida. The earliest known resident of this lot was an African-American barber named F. E. Eaverly in 1911. In 1917, both Eaverly and M. H. Johnson, who was also black, were listed at this address. By 1924, the suite was being occupied by Clair & Morris, an African-American clothes cleaning business, as well as by F. E. Eaverly's barbering and watch repair shop. F. A. Lenning's restaurant and J. M. Garrett's barber shop took over this address by 1926. By 1952, Garrett had moved his business to 110 South Sanford Avenue. At the time that this photograph was taken in January 2012, Suite 110 was a vacant lot with no buildings.

Joseph Daniels is the first known resident of Suite 112 from approximately 1911 to 1917. From approximately 1926 to 1947, Simons Veriety Store was located at this address. Wilson-Maier Furniture Company Annex later occupied this suite from approximately 1965 to 1975. At the time that this photograph was taken, Suite 112 was a vacant building. By November 2013, a Goodwill Self Sufficiency Job Center was located at this address.

In 1965, the lot at 114 South Sanford Avenue was listed as vacant. Florida Patient Aids Inc. Hospital Supplies occupied this location as early as 1975. At the time that this photograph was taken, Suite 114 housed Angel's Soulfood & BBQ.
