    Now days as most people just go about their daily business enjoying their Labor Day weekend we are being blasted by a hurricane of climate and weather BS.

    BTW that hurricane with the destruction of much of the RR set back the development of southern Keys well over a decade.

      RAH, the southern Keys were already developed…that’s why Flagler wanted to build the railroad…he wanted to capitalize on it

      • RAH says:

        Flager built the RR to make it attractive for the wealthy to travel there. Before that Key West, while rich because of treasure and salvage, salt, and sponging had little to offer to outsiders to make it worth the trip. True development did not begin until there was a tourist trade and that did not happen until after the highway was completed and WW II was over.

        When a place is developed or developing it is reflected in real estate prices. Hawaii was more developed in 1935 than the southern Keys.
