Florida Brewing II ,
Ybor City Map
Great Caper Clue #4: While riding the streetcar to your next stop, take a photo of what is still the tallest building in Ybor City. Now a commercial office building, this former brewery was built on a spring thought by Paleo-Indians and Spanish explorers to have healing properties.
This historic photo was taken around 1900, a few years after the Florida Brewing Company building was built. Notice how much Ybor has changed, especially with the buildings in the background and the trains and horse pulled carriages in the foreground. In order to have the modern photo come close to obtaining the same perspective as the historic photo, I took this photograph from on top of the Crosstown Expressway.
