General Note:
The roads were dirt; mosquitos filled the air and alligators roamed the wetlands; and social services did not exist. The EL CENTRO ESPANOL was founded by a group of cigar manufacturers in 1891 so that the Spanish could find a social refuge from the anti-Spanish feelings developing in the decade. Ignacio Haya was abused on the streets by Cubans and the anti-Spanish yellow journalism of Florida papers was continuous. There was a need to preserve Spanish ways.
