“The Eastern End…pinhole”


This is truly the first house on the east end of 2nd Street [our Main Street]. It is really interesting how much the history of Cedar Key is reflected in this collection of pinhole photographs. They span a period of time from the early days when Cedar Key was one of the main ports in Florida and its populations was several times that which it is today, to the present. I know at least one of the buildings photographed was actually brought over from Atsena Otie Key after a hurricane and later a fire destroyed that settlement in the late 1890’s. Of course, the Island Hotel also dates back to the ‘hay days’ of the town when it was one of the major shipping and railroad hubs in Florida.
