Jacksonville in Flames

Caption reads:
Hon. D.U. Fletcher, recently elected mayor of the city
Capt. C.E. Garner, president, relief association and board of trade. [Jacksonville's Progressive Era leaders].

From Acres of Ashes: "Upon the State of Florida the morning of Friday, May 3, dawned to show every promise of hope and prosperity . . . So peaceful and assured dawned the day for a city that would be blotted out of existence within a few hours!"
