- The Relief Work Crews -

This page is dedicated to the many unsung heroes.

     Other photos in this series have depicted crews of workers. As one can imagine, the hard work was relegated to the Black workers.

     A newly arrived group of Florida National Guardsmen.
     Quite a few CCC workers came to help their fellow workers. The FERA veterans were not of the Civilian Conservation Corps, primarily because of the younger age limit.
     As mentioned before, Snake Creek remained the center of relief efforts for some time. The white collar offices were in Tavernier.
    It must be either "chow" time, "beer" time or payday at Snake Creek. Thanks are offered for the efforts of many whose names have long been forgotten.
