We went to the Tampa Bay History Center Saturday and learned more about the cigar industry at the turn of the twentieth century. In a previous posting I probably gave the impression that the industry was primarily located in Ybor city. I should have included West Tampa. In the history museum there is a whole exhibit dedicated to the "Cigar City". When I saw the collection of cigar boxes there something clicked in my brain. Of course, I do remember seeing cigar boxes in the past with the name of Tampa on them. And for that matter, also the name of Ybor city. Back then it never meant much to me!
