Down 8th Ave.

The Ybor City section of Tampa had a rich earlier history as a manufacturing town, once key in a flourishing Florida cigar industry.  The heart of today's entertainment district lies one block south of, and parallel to, the streetcar route, and extends seven or eight blocks along 7th Ave.

In this view along 8th, an approaching run is at the Streetcar Society Station (15th St).   A large community college is located to the north, on the fringe of the tourist district.
