Laying Cable

Laying phone cable to Anastasia Island. Photo courtesy Florida Memory.

This was taken before the Monson Hotel (large white building at the right edge of the photo) was torn down to make room for the Monson Motor Lodge. Today it, too, has been replaced by a Hilton hotel built to look like a series of colonial era houses. Another historical feature missing from today’s view – the large “digital” clock on the top of the Exchange Bank building.
