General Note:
Verso "A view of Florida Avenue facing north from Polk Street circa 1900. At right is the historic Palmetto Hotel built in 1884. Count Rothchild stayed here in the 80's and served as political headquarters for Govenor Mitchel in 1892. During the Spanish-American War it was used by American officers and Cuban refugees. The last owner was T.N. Anderson, Cheif of Police. It was torn down in 1919. The building on the right is the Le Forte Hotel. It had been the old courthouse and moved to this location. For a while it served as Tampa's first hospital. It was destroyed by fire in 1908."
