Primary Source

For my research paper I have decided to write my paper on how transportation effected winter parks development and focusing primarily on the railroad. For my first primary source circa 1915 the article is found in the Winter Park Post Newspaper and The article is titled "Brighter Lights at the Depot." The article goes on to seek different sides of the opinion of the installtion of brighter lights around the train depot. One side says a few dollars a month is no big deal to the Atlantic Coast Railroad since their business in the town exceeds a hundered thousand dollars at the time.

  1. A class focus on the 1890s is not going to incorporate a lot of focus on 1915. Instead, let try looking at something like Florida Memory resources about the railroad industry.
