My first thought when I saw this Stoner litho of Cedar Key, Florida [gmap] was ”Wow, sure is a lot of industry going on there, what's that about”. Even after seeing all the little stacked logs next to the sawmill in the lower left, I still wasn't catching on.

Then I read the Wikipedia article and found out that Cedar Key had a lot of cedar, go figure. I'm going to start calling Cedar Key The Lebanon of the West and we'll see if that catches on.
