Smallwood Store

From my Smallwood Store adventure, I was inspired to collage several photos and manipulate them in Photoshop.

On the western edge of the Everglades and deep in the heart of the 10,000 Islands, Chokoloskee Island has been called one of Florida's last frontiers. Here at historic Smallwood Store I discovered what shopping was like for the pioneers and settlers who tamed this vast wilderness. Established in 1906, this Trading Post served a remote area. I was most interested in the sewing goods sold to the ladies.
