This photograph shows the Fellsmere Railroad. Operations on the new Fellsmere Railroad began on September 1st, 1923 and the railroad out to Broadmoor was cleared and retied and the draglines that were once used to dig canals were now put to use digging peat deposits in the swampy muck. The railroad itself did not own any mining cars, so the mining company probably provided its own cars for transport between Broadmoor and Fellsmere. The mining company did build a large processing plant were the peat was carried and dried for shipment in boxcars to fertilizer plants all over the United States.

The Fellsmere Railroad name only lasted until June 2nd, 1924, when the Trans Florida Central (TFC) Railroad took over operations.
This photograph has been posted to photo album paper at some time. I do not plan on removing it as this may cause damage. It has been cut down to look like a frame for the photo.

The photo measures 3.5 inches by 6 inches.
With the frame it measures 5 inches by 6 inches.

The first image is a close up.
The third image is the actual photo.

Every photo that is in my shop marked as “vintage” is just that. It is not a copy of a picture, or a reproduction I’ve made of an original photograph. I do my best to credit the original photographer, but many of the photos I have collected are unmarked. Please forgive this negligence – no ill will is intended.

Because of the varied care and preservation of these photographs, please understand that these are not perfect by any means. I have done my best in my description above to make you aware of any flaws. I hope that the images (photographs and/or scans) above fairly represent the original. I take the photographs in natural light, scan on a common scanner, and do very little editing other than cropping.

All photos will be safely mailed in sealed archival Mylar with board backs to prevent damage.

I gladly ship multiple photos at the same price as single shipping.
You’ll see in the “Shipping Cost with Additional Item” section below, that each additional photo will ship for free.
