Florida DOT: Historic Transportation Photos

Here’s a very interesting site from the Florida Department of Transportation that really gets us inspired! Transportation photography offers such a wide variety of subjects that even back then, with bulky, sometimes difficult equipment, photographers got a lot of great shots.

So many wonderful pictures, so little time…

Brooksville Road Construction late 1926
Hernando County voters approved a $100,000 road construction bond in August 1925 to provide 75 miles of hard rock roads. The road bed materials at the time cost $4.60 a ton. In 1926 a road was prepared between Old Spring Hill Road and Weeki Wachee. Old Hammock Road, seen here in this photo, was improved between Brooksville and Crystal River.
