Caption: In July 1970, the Santa Maria was returned to the riverfront, supported by two barges, but never became the attraction that Cervantes had hoped for. In March 1973, a Florida promoter bought it and had it pushed downriver for one more try at drawing tourists. The Atlantic shore at Titusville, Fla., was a more appropriate place for a replica of a Spanish cargo ship, but it was gutted by fire on June 27, 1974. Said Cervantes, no longer mayor, "That is just an ill-fated ship." For a time, the ship's anchor rested near the old mooring site on the St. Louis landing. (James Rackwitz)
