This is the first offices of the Holly Hill Grove and Fruit Company in Davenport, in Polk County. In the background, to the right, is the Holly Hill Hotel.
Today Davenport has been lost to the action of the U.S. Postal Service naming a large area as a postal district “Davenport” that is nearly fifteen times the size of the real Davenport south of Interstate 4 and east of U.S. 27.
