Description

Lot located at 123 South Sanford Avenue in the Georgetown, an historic African-American neighborhood in Sanford, Florida. The earliest known occupant of this lot was George Latham, an African-American resident, in 1911. Lydia Goodwin, another African American, resided here in 1917 and operated a furniture business here from approximately 1924 to 1926. Kate Culmer, a black dressmaker, also ran her dress shop at this address in 1924. At the time that this photograph was taken in January 2012, the lot at 401 East First Street was expanded into this location to house a U.S. Post Office.
