St. Johns and Halifax Railway

The St. Johns and Halifax Railway was incorporated under the general incorporation laws of Florida to build a railroad from Rawlston, in Putnam County, on the St. Johns River, to a point on the Halifax River, in Volusia County, at or near New Britain (known as Ormond Beach today). Florida state law chapter 3650, approved February 12, 1885, assigned it land grants.

Famous quotes containing the words railway and/or johns:

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    An art whose limits depend on a moving image, mass audience, and industrial production is bound to differ from an art whose limits depend on language, a limited audience, and individual creation. In short, the filmed novel, in spite of certain resemblances, will inevitably become a different artistic entity from the novel on which it is based.
