SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY FEB 29, 2020

Did you know that people have been plying Florida's waterways in boats for at least 7,000 years? That "Old Cabbage Head" — the steam engine now housed at the Manatee Village Historical Park — was driven by Florida's first African American conductor? Or that in the 1950s, Bradenton was home to the world's largest trailer park and its resident Tin Can Tourists? Discover all of this and more as you explore the history of transportation in the Sunshine State using The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature newest Pathways tour "Reins, Trains, and Tin Can Tourists." Pathways is a free smartphone and tablet-based app that helps you learn more about the objects in Bishop’s unique exhibitions and the sometimes surprising stories behind them.
