“This Picture was taken from the Prudential Insurance Building showing the big parking lot and the need for a parking garage.  This picture was taken in the 50’s.  Note top center on San Marco, The Royal Crown Bottling plant.  The Fuller Warren Bridge Ramp looks brand new.  Some difference today.”  LS

This image appears to be looking South toward San Marco. When details were enlarged you could see that the approach to the Fuller Warren Bridge is still under construction in the upper left of the frame.  The Fuller Warren Bridge over the St. Johns River was completed in 1954.

    Great picture! Just found this site. There is a 1957 Chevrolet in the lower right corner so this must have been taken in late ’56 or later. Looking forward to seeing the other articles. Thanks again.
