Sarasota History - Selby Yacht in Hudson Bayou photo

William and Marie Selby's yacht the "Bilma" in Hudson Bayou next to their property at the end of South Palm Avenue. This photo was taken soon after their guest house was constructed. They eventually settled on living there instead of building a large home. The Bilma's name was derived from the first parts of their names, Bill and Marie.
