. .

Begun in 1905 and built by Henry Flagler, the Florida East Coast Railway Key West Extension was called the Eighth Wonder of the World. This 100th Anniversary edition tells the story of the Overseas Railroad. It is illustrated with over 50 carefully reproduced vintage photographs. A masterpiece of railroad engineering, the Extension traversed magnificent concrete spans above Florida Keys waters from the mainland to Key West. It opened in 1912 and, for three decades, thousands of passengers enjoyed the breathtaking trip across brilliant seas and tropical islands. The devastating Labor Day hurricane of September 2, 1935, brought an end to The Railroad That Went to Sea. Today US 1 highway travels upon the route of the original railroad.--Amazon.
