How Franjo Road Got Its Name — 3 Comments

  1. My Uncle John Hollis Steele was General Manager of Tropical Agriculture Corporation Association (TACA) Packing House in Goulds, FL. G. Walter Peterson was the owner, they planted; processed and shipped potatoes to all parts of the country by rail and trucks. My Uncle started out at 13 making and selling wooden boxes to them, then they hired him to make boxes for them full-time. Then he started overseeing the planting, growing, etc. and wound up being an investor and General Manager for over 40 years.

    • The name of the Goulds potato farmer who Hollis Steele worked for was Lou Peters, not G. Walter Peterson.
