Pasco County Florida

Stan's picture

Recently, I found an old photograph of a lightweight trestle in a Florida swamp. One thing led to another, and over the next couple of days, I found a lot of interesting photos and history of a massive logging operation that used to exist in Pasco County, Florida. It's all gone now, but there are some fascinating photos.
Here are a few links.
