    READER RECALLS WEBB CITY

    Hi William,
    I found your article on Doc Webb and his store, and am wondering if you can lead me to the sources from which you retrieved all of your wonderful information. I'm working on a senior thesis on downtown St. Petersburg and would like to include some of these neat facts, but would like to cite the original sources.

    Thanks!
    Amy Santee

    WILL MORIATY RESPONDS:

    Dear Ms. Santee:
    Thank you for reading our on-line publication!

    The facts were procured from an actual Webb's City brochure from the 1940's or 1950's that I purchased from my collector friend Mike Hiscano of Miami. The brochure has been packaged in storage as I have had to move due to repairs needed on my house. It may be close to half a year before I can move back and unpack.

    Regardless, that was my source, so it was a pretty accurate document being that it is of a first hand nature.

    Thanks again for reading our publication and best of luck on your thesis!

    Sincerely,
    William Moriaty
