General Note:
Ybor arrived in Key West and opened a cigar factory in 1869. He was not the first manufacturer to open a factory there, however. Joseph Seidenberg of New York City had started a factory in 1868, when only a few small cigar shops operated in Key West.. Seidenberg produced a brand, 'La Rosa Espanola' (sometimes misspelled in older publications as 'La Rosa Espainola'), his popular brand in Key West, and in his factory later opened in Tampa.
