A walk on a sunny but chilly Sunday afternoon in Ybor City, a historic neighborhood located northeast of downtown Tampa.  Ybor was founded in 1885  by Vicente Martinez-Ybor with other cigar manufactures.  Over the next 50-plus years, hundreds of millions of cigars were hand rolled annually by Cuban, Italian and Spanish immigrants who worked in Ybor’s cigar factories.
