Mobile Described, 1894

It is only an hour's ride by rail to Mobile, a city with a great future. Time will soon open a way through the Nicaragua Canal and then this city will be a great distributing point. Mobile is situated on Mobile Bay. A road of shells traces its banks for more than five miles. Mobile is blessed with beautiful parks; oysters and fish in abundance. Ships laden with tropical fruits land wthin a stones throw of the Chamber of Commerce. Fifteen miles distant are the snapper banks, which is only a few miles from the Gulf. Three rail roads bring the city in direct communication with the markets, East, West and North.
