Description

This photograph was taken from Commercial Street looking West towards Oak Avenue in Sanford, Florida. The railroad dock can be seen in the distance. When Henry Shelton Sanford (1823-1891) first established the City of Sanford, he laid out the streets on a grid plan. Streets running toward Lake Monroe were given names of native Florida trees, while streets running parallel to the lake were numbered.
