    History detour - Davenport, IA former "cigar capital"

    Growing up across the Mississippi river in Illinois I never knew that at one time, Davenport, Iowa was the biggest
    cigar manufacturing center between Chicago and California.

    Nice article - http://qctimes.com/lifestyles/announ...cc4c03286.html

    It is always interesting to me when history reveals a previously unknown chapter about an area/era you thought you knew about.
