Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Twelfth Avenue in Snow …

with 9 comments

This is a view of the park on 12th Avenue in snow … I cannot remember right now if it was 1955 or 1958, but the more I think about it I want to say 1958.  That is me in the photo and judging from my size, I would say that I look closer to 5 than 2.  I posted a smaller photo of the park and someone emailed me and asked if it was sand … it almost looks as if it is.  I have a few photos from this snow that I posted on the old site that I plan to re-post here at some point.  If anyone has any memories from this time,  please share them because I am sure everyone would be interested in hearing them.

  1. I also think the year was 1958 around the month of February, I was 9 years old. My family lived near the corner of P St and Hayes
    St across from the Silcox Barber Shop. I went to C A Weis School and the day it started snowing we had just had lunch and everybody got to go home early, since we lived about 3 blocks from school walked home, and later that evening there was so much snow there were no cars on the and we got to play in the street in the snow, such an awesome memory. That was 60 years ago and I still live only a few blocks from there and when I drive by there those good old memories with my sisters and brothers and I playing in the snow are still with me. PRICELESS!!

  2. I was about 3 when it snowed in 1958. I remember having a cold, and my parents would not let me go out to play in the snow. I threw a fit, but they still kept me away from all the fun.

    • I have photos that my father made of me out in the snow, but I was too young to remember playing in it … Frank

      • Frank, my wife and I were married on February 8, 1958. While we were honeymooning at Pensacola
        Beach there came a super snow storm that made the white sand look very dirty. We were married at
        St. Michael’s Church and your father was our photographer.
        Many thanks for the work you are doing.
        Delmar and Mary Anne Smith from Decatur, Alabama.

      • Delmar … Thanks for your comments. I still have my father’s old appointment books and I am going to look up the date and find your wife’s maiden name. I still have some negatives from 1958 and I am going to see if I have anything. Thanks for the comments and please check back … Frank

    • Bill – They told us that it was being closed down because they were building one on Bayou Blvd and a few weeks later it was shut down. Thanks for the comment … Frank
