Photograph from the upper veranda of Jefferson C. Ensminger's photography studio, looking out at the Sanford waterfront on Lake Monroe. The designs of the porch roof and railing can be seen in the foregound of the photograph. At the extreme right of the image is the multi-story Welborne Block, later known as the Valdez Hotel. To the left of that building is a two-storey wood-frame building with the words "Florida Land and Colonization Company" painted on the side. On the lake, at the center of the photograph, is the steamer "City of Jacksonville". On the bank on the river are two early automobiles. On the back of the photograph is written, "at foot of Park Ave., City of Jacksonville".
