|Smallwood's Store Ole Indian
Trading Post Chokoloskee, Fl., near Everglades City was one of
the first stores in the area. People
from the10,000 Islands would come by canoe to
buy supplies and pick up their mail.
. By today's standards this place would be very rustic but back then it was very uptown. Lot's of items were hung on the walls.
Traveling by water was preferred since the road tended to be flooded and was dirt making it inaccessible at times.
