No vote, still a goat
All U.S cities are founded by men.
Except for one.
It´s 1896 and Julia Tuttle isn´t even allowed to vote (cause she´s a woman)
she manages to found and incorporate a city.
Gonna think about that next time I have a challenge coming up.
The Mother of Miami saw a vision of what the city could be, back when there was only swamp.
And today, it´s hard to picture
That not so long ago, Henry Flagler had to travel by boat to reach the undeveloped and unreachable place
that today is the best city in the world. He went there to be
convinced by Julia to extend his railway down to Miami.
She knew that the place was going to blossom, once it was possible to reach by train
and she was right
it took a lot of work. Especially from her. And she faced a lot of obstacles. Julia DeForest Tuttle
Just mentioning her name again because
I don´t think the Mother of Miami is getting proportional credit for her iconic creation and work
I didn´t even know this story up until recently
and it´s not like I know everything, but I feel like I should have known this after living close to this city for five years
and that´s it. That´s the Miami story for this time.
Go there and make your own
