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/announcements/collection-reflects-davenport-s-days-as-a-cigar-capital-of/article_6b8acc86-540d-11e0-bc2c-001cc4c03286.html

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