About this book
Perfect for anyone who loves to look at charming old houses and imagine their histories, this book offers a selection of what are probably the most historically interesting, aesthetically appealing, and photogenic of the nineteenth-century houses in the Key West historic district. It includes full color photos, as well as a variety of charming anecdotes about old Key West gleaned from interviews with descendants of the families who built houses there. Key West was an industrial town and many of its houses were for workers who had little to spend on housing. The shotgun houses are simple, undecorated houses, many of them built by cigar-makers for their workers. Then, of course, there are the great houses--the Heritage House, the Cosgrove House, the Hemingway House, and the Southernmost House--large and famous houses with unique and proud histories. Then there are the eyebrow houses, shotgun houses, and "Conch Victorians"--many of Key West's houses were built by ship's carpenters, who built strong, tight, shiplike hoses, most working without plans other than memories of vessels and seaport homes from their own past. Widow's walks were borrowed from New England, overhanging eaves (eyebrows) from the West Indies. Builders added details from architectural fads of the time--from Greek Revival columns to Creole trellises. The final architectural mix, what we see now in Key West's Old Town, can only be called, like the natives themselves, Conch.

    Good - But not for Ocean side locations

    3/5 Steve Ward (Ridgefiled, CT United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Good Directions 457B Key West Hose Pot, Holds Up To 150-Feet of Hose, Blue Verde Brass (Lawn & Patio) We bought 11 of these good direction pots in various designs for an ocean side commercial location. the Pots look great, and work perfectly BUT - they are not all brass.The pots hold plenty of hose, they are sturdy even when the gardeners are not careful, and they stand up to rain, wind, dirt, etc. easy to clean and look nice.HOWEVER - there is a bead at the top of the pot made of steel - the rest of the pot is solid brass. After 18 months all pots have jagged edges where the steel has rusted and worn away the brass covering. Basically they are all now unusable and will need to be replaced. I am calling the Mfg and will update this if they take care of the problem.These pots would be perfect for other locations - they really are very nice, but the steel in them just does not work if you are around salt air.

    Nice pot

    4/5 Sunrise (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Good Directions 457B Key West Hose Pot, Holds Up To 150-Feet of Hose, Blue Verde Brass (Lawn & Patio) It's a good pot, though more brightly turquoise than I expected, so it's more obvious to the eye than I would have liked. That will change with time, I imagine. Funny enough, it is striking in its looks, so people ask what it's for - lol. So much for hiding the hose.One thing I'd say is that this would never easily house a regular size hose (1") unless it's under 25 feet of it. You'd be better off buying a hose caddy and a portable fence or something like that, for a longer hose. When I saw the pot, knew we needed more than 25, so I opted for 50' coiled non-kink 1/2" hose with sprayer, and that fits with room to spare in there.

    The Soul of Key West

    I recently purchased my third copy of this book, having bought it the first time in Key West when it was first published nearly twenty years ago. One copy finally fell apart from re-reading, the other was loaned out for the final time and not returned. This anthology captures the soul of Key West as revealed by many of its most famous writers: John Dos Passos, Elizabeth Bishop, Hunter S. Thompson, Robert Frost, Hemingway. Most of the selections are short and include poems, story excerpts, essays. Philip Caputo's description of the Gulf Stream, and the marlin that lurk within it, is one of the most beautiful pieces ever written on either of those subjects. Jim Harrison writes that "Porpoises dance for as long as they live ..." Bishop describes how "the norther churns/the pale-green sea until it turns/to lime milk sherbet." Sunken ships, lost souls, hurricanes. The collection, in so many ways, captures the troublesome and sad intersection of our desperate and failing lives with the... 5/5 Marsh Muirhead (Minnesota) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Key West Reader: The Best of the Key Wests Writers 1830-1990 (Paperback) I recently purchased my third copy of this book, having bought it the first time in Key West when it was first published nearly twenty years ago.

    Mythical Yarn Brings Life to Old Key West

    I purchased Jane Newhagen's Sand Dollar during a recent visit to the Florida Keys and found it a distinct advantage to be able to read the first half of the book while still there in its old Key West setting. Reading of St. Paul's, the graceful, cathedral-like Episcopal church we had just visited; of the original cemetery, whose history I learned during a tour of its present-day site; and of the shops along historic Duvall Street, put me in the midst of this epic story's framework. Many of the early landmarks still exist, and one could almost see and hear the characters speaking, the ships coming into port, the hurricane's howling, and the towering waves of storm surge. I even wept as the tragedies unfolded. Extensively and meticulously researched, this book showcases the author's ability to cast an imaginative concept into a disciplined and believable story backed by historical fact. It was consistently entertaining, informative, emotionally gripping and nearly impossible to lay... 5/5 Joyce Hersh (Highlands Ranch, CO) - See all my reviews, September 16, 2007
