Description
This album shows construction of various sections of the Florida Keys to Key West line of the Florida East Coast Railway.
Background
This line was built in the 1906-1911 time period and was considered a monumental engineering achievement. The first train ran to Key West in January 1912. The train photos could be shots of the first passenger train. The line was virtually destroyed by a hurricane in 1935 and the bridges and viaducts were used for highway construction. There is no caption information.
Extent
.33 linear feet
