At the turn of the century, St. Augustine's cigar industry was flourishing. Balmy nights and a good cigar were a tradition.
Just after World War I, the cigar industry flourished in St. Augustine. It was second only to the Florida East Coast Railway as the largest employer in town. Skilled cigar rollers could produce 100 to 300 cigars a day!
Unfortunately, the art of hand-rolled cigars ended when machines took over production.
