Duval Street, Key West - 1937

southernmost city in the United States, which for decades has 
been content to drowse in semi tropical langour, 
today begins to give promise of 
progressive awakening. An almost completed steel and concrete highway, 
extending from Miami for 170 miles from Key to Key, over open 
sea to Key West, is chiefly responsible. 
Here is a view of 600 block of Duval Street. 28 December 1937.
