A community initiative of the UWF Historic Trust to display historically significant photographic murals throughout downtown Pensacola for residents and tourists of all ages to learn about the illustrious history of our great city.

Mural: Birds Eye View of Pensacola, 1896
Building: Isis Theater
Address: 2 N Palafox Street

Mural Caption: Thomas C. Watson captured the maritime activities responsible for the growth and development of the city. In the 1890s, more ships entered the port than ever before. Sail gave way to steam, and rail was constructed to accommodate the industrial rise. The Muscogee Wharf Mill (pictured, bottom right) produced 260,000 feet of lumber each day. This chapter of Pensacola's history led to the permanent expansion of the downtown waterfront.
