Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Aragon Court in the 1950’s …

with 4 comments

I thought that I would follow up the ” Grounds Keeper ” up with this photo of Aragon Court taken back in the 1950’s, because if you look closely, in the back left of this image is the Admiral Mason Ball Park where the Pensacola Dons played.  It shows what Ninth Avenue looked like south of Gregory Street in the mid-1950’s .  And you know that the Aragon Courts were torn down back in the 1970’s and Aragon was built in it’s place back in the 1990’s.  This is the only exterior view that I have found of the Admiral Mason Ball Park … I wish I had a close-up view of the entrance, but I do not.  Thanks for looking …

    • Greetings and thanks for commenting … If you would like to download a copy of this image, please feel free to copy the image. You should be able to get a nice 4×5 or 5×7 image of Aragon Courts without it becoming pixelated. This is the only image of Aragon Courts that my I ran across in my father’s negatives. You might want to try the Florida State Archive because I remember seeing an image of that area in it’s files. I believe that you can order prints through them, but it would be easy to find out by giving them a call. You might also want to try the Pensacola Historic Trust ( used to be the Pensacola Historical Society ) and ask someone to look in their files … they have a huge inventory of Pensacola and areas on file. If you have any other questions, please ask and I will do what I can to send you in the right direction. Frank
