General Note:
Tampans were elated over the possibility of bringing a new industry into the area. The local Tampa paper stated: 'The benefits that would inure to Tampa from the establishment of such an industry cannot be too deeply impressed on our citizens. The firm of Sanchez and Haya employs 125 cigar makers and can give employment to any number of little boys and girls as strippers.' (Strippers were the workers who removed the stems from tobacco leaves.).
