Glass Bottom Boat
Seeing Silver Springs, Marion Co., Fl. through glass bottomed row boat.  The absolute clearness and iridescent brilliancy of the water enables a view through the glass bottomed row boat or from steamers deck of very minute objects on the bottom, including varigated shells, rocks, mosses and fishes.  The white rock beneath the cluster of springs yields a clear and tasteless table water.  "Bridal Chamber," "The Ladies Parlor," :"Crater Spring," are the most interesting of these springs.  (C) 1911  R. W. Thompson.
