Ybor City oral history project
Interview conducted April 24, 1980.
This is an interview with Aurora Fernandez, a longtime resident of Ybor City, Florida. Fernandez was born in Havana in 1891 and came to Tampa with her family in 1909. She worked in various cigar factories from 1913 to 1937. During the 1920 strike, which lasted for ten months, she had her second son, her husband went to Cuba to work, and many other people went to Detroit; they all returned when the strike was over. When Fernandez first came to Ybor City, she lived in a mixed Spanish-Cuban-Italian neighborhood. On Saturday nights, everyone went to Seventh Avenue to walk around, go to dances, and look for potential spouses; she met her husband at the cigar factory. She used to play bolita, a type of lottery, and once won some money to buy her daughter a dress. For this interview, she is joined by Maria Fernandez, possibly her daughter or another relative, who adds comments.
