Description

Two women on decorated motor scooters. The women have been identified as Gertrude Broomell and Beulah (last name unknown). Theses photographs are from the 1979 celebration of Independence Day in Sebastian, Florida.

Sebastian, Florida, was established as a fishing village as early as the 1870s. In the early 1880s, David Peter Gibson and Thomas New became the first non-indigenous settlers in Sebastian. New founded a post office called New Haven and he held the position of postmaster, until his removal for misuse of office. In 1882, Sebastian was officially established as St. Sebastian. In 1923, Sebastian was incorporated as a city.
