 Notes
General Note: Ybor hired Gavino Gutiérrez as a civil engineer to survey the land and to oversee construction. Workers and supplies came first from Savannah.24 Ybor was so anxious to start that he initiated construction even before he received his $4,000 from the Board of Trade, and work began on October 8,1885. Land was first cleared so that Gutiérrez and his surveyors could divide the property into plots for sale. Don Vicente quickly added to his original forty acres by purchasing more land from John Lesley, Stephen M. Sparkman, Thomas Spencer, and he also bought land from Gavino Gutiérrez who had secured it earlier. In addition, Ybor purchased an adjoining fifty acres which ran from Tampa Heights to the edge of the Hillsborough Bay.25 The first city plan gave numerical designations to streets running north and south; those running east and west were named after states of the union. Later, most streets and avenues were given numbers. Haya likewise purchased large tracts of land.
