C.V.S. Wilson and his wife Rose are pictured here at Sarasota's first newspaper, the Sarasota Times. It was located on lower Main Street near Five Points. Young Rose took over after her husband passed away and is noted for her bravery in fighting for women's voting rights, separation of Sarasota from Manatee County, and many other noteworthy achievments when women were not considered equal to men.
