In 1921 hurricanes were not named, but the one in October of that year left a lasting impression on those who experienced it. Beginning with rain on Saturday, October the 22nd, the storm left the Sarasota bayfront a shambles by Tuesday. As shown in this photo, the storm lifted the Seaboard Airline Rail tracks from the dock serving several fish houses and dropped them over the sea wall onto Gulf Stream Avenue not far from City Hall at the foot of Main Street.
