Three events in the1880's were crucial to the development of Tampa. First was the production of hand-rolled cigars. Hundreds of competing firms manufactured well over 100 million cigars a year from the late 1880s through the 1930s. Sister industries to cigar making, namely box making and lithography, were a close second.
Tampa's nickname became "Cigar City", but the Great Depression of the 1930s cut worldwide demand for cigars. Many of the factories closed, some mechanized and some cut payroll to maintain the hand-rolled tradition.
The second major event of the late 1880s was the discovery of phosphate in Bone Valley. Phosphate was and is used in making agricultural fertilizer. The region still produces phosphates.
Finally, the South Florida Railroad reached Tampa in the late 1880s. The town was at last connected to the national railroad system. Phosphates, cigars and other products could be shipped north by rail.
Today, Tampa not only produces cigars and ships phosphates, companies produce electronic equipment, medical equipment, beer, paint, fabricated steel, fertilizers, citrus products, livestock, processed shrimp, decorative plants, flowers and more.
About twenty (20) research centers are scattered around the Tampa area. Many of the centers are associated with the University of South Florida. Health care and high technology equipment are a couple of the areas on which the research is focused.
Tampa has the distinction of being one of the stormiest cities in the United States. From June to September, late afternoon thundershowers sweep across the area, but that does not stop fans from supporting their favorite national league team, the National Football League's Tampa Bay Buccaneers; the National Hockey League's Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Arena Football League's Tampa Bay Storm.
Tampa, "where the good life gets better every day", is a fascinating place to live, work and play.
