We rode a tram out to Pigeon Key, a small island south of Marathon. During the building of Flagler's railroad to Key West, Pigeon Key served as headquarters and lodging for the construction workers. Most of the buildings are open and one has been turned into a nice museum. In this photo, the new Overseas Highway is in the far left. The guard railings of the old highway were made from the iron rails of the old, hurricane-destroyed railroad.
