Ybor City oral history project
Interview conducted November 28, 2000.
This is an oral history interview with Estelle Garcia, a native of Ybor City born in 1925. Both of her parents were cigar makers; her father was from New York, and her mother was a Cuban immigrant. When she was ten, Garcia's family moved next to the Centro Asturiano, where she was a member of the juvenile club. The family also participated in many of the events held at the other Ybor City social clubs, L'Unione Italiana and El Circulo Cubano; as an adult, Garcia was not a member of any Ybor social clubs. For medical care, they had an independent clinic run by a local doctor: members paid twenty-five cents a week and received full benefits. Much of this interview is about the mutual aid societies and their role in Ybor City culture and society; it also touches on urban renewal and ethnic relations.
