Key West Singleton Statue

Key West's harbor -- naturally deep and sheltered from the Gulf of Mexico -- led to the island's early prosperity in the shipwreck salvaging, cigar manufacturing and fishing industries. Until the 1970s it was used by boats that brought in catches of shrimp and green turtles. Today it is filled with boats catering to tourists, offering fishing, snorkeling and diving trips out to the reef. The city now owns much of the waterfront, purchased in the 1990s from the family of shrimper Henry "Booty" Singleton, shown in this statue.
