Description

The purpose of this cityscape is to contrast the drastic transformation the city of Sanford, Florida underwent between 1877 and 1910. Within the space of a single generation, the city had gone from a remote outpost for crackers and the most hardened of pioneer settlers to one of Florida's most preeminent cities. This image captures the prosperity and activity that can be attributed to what The Sanford Herald deigned as "The Great Industrial Awakening of the South."
