General Note:
The first factory of Sanchez & Haya, where Tampa's first clear Havana cigars were produced in 1886. Haya constructed a two story wooden factory at the corner of Seventh Avenue and 15th Street. During construction, he visited a local Tampa banker, Thomas Taliaferro, to inform him that he and Sr. Ybor need an institution of credit to facilitate the transactions involving purchases, sales, collections, and wages for their employees. At first, Taliaferro was unsure about the success of the cigar business in Tampa, but when Haya assured him that initial salaries would amount to more than $10,000 a month, Taliaferro, who was planning to move to Jacksonville, now decided his future was in Tampa. Thanks to the influence of Sr. Haya, he became a successful Tampa banker, and founder of today's First National Bank.
