85th street is the one that crosses the street.  Look in Google earth, and put the little man on the street.  The photos will take you there.

Hello Bill,

I have attached some photos I took in 2008 of building next to the FEC tracks, but now no switch in place.  This first one is on the north side of the street that crosses the tracks.

Anyone have information on citrus packing/loading on FEC? Locations, names of companies, type of structures?
Thank you

One good way to find photos is through post cards.
Many a packinghouse or association had their own post cards.
Ebay would be a good place to search.

Another source would be old issues of Citrus Industry magazine, a large University Library (in Florida) should have a set.
They may have stories written about individual packing houses.
I know that when I worked for them they would do such stories, complete with pictures.
