General Note:
The lure of these attractive and well-advertised developments quickly made West Tampa an immediate rival to Ybor City as a cigar manufacturing center. Beginning with the construction in 1892 of the factories for the O'Hara and Company and the large Julius Ellinger Company, the Macfarlane Investment Company attractedover two dozen large firms and 50 small, family-operated companies to West Tampa during the next 30 years.
Funded in part by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Ephemeral Cities Project.
