Photoessay: Ybor City, Sunday Morning

Ybor City on Sunday morning is a quiet place, recovering from Saturday night. Nothing has changed much in that regard in over a century. Not really a city but the quaint old part of modern-day Tampa, FL, with a storied history of Cuban cigar makers and prohibition era rum runners.

Slowly Ybor starts waking up. A few locals venture out for their first cup of Cafe Cubano, a sugary shot of espresso.
