Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Palafox Street around 1925 …

with 2 comments

This is  Palafox Street looking north from around Wright Street.  The building that you see up on the right side about a block used to be the old YMCA building.   The hill looks a lot steeper today than it did back around 1924 or 1925 when this photograph was made.  This is one that someone had brought to me to copy and I saved a negative for myself.  I have no idea who the photographer was since there were no markings on the print.  Notice that the street was paved with bricks.  You can barely make out the Confederate Monument at the top of the hill.

NOTE:  If you click on the photograph, it will open up on it’s own page.  I uploaded this image as an 8×10, so you can see all the detail in the print.  The majority of the images I upload are sized as 4×5’s and are low resolution for the web.  This image is a much larger file, however it took a while for it to upload and is a large file … too large really for the internet, since it takes longer for it to load.  I thought I would just let you know, in case you never bother to click on the image to see it enlarged.  Thanks … Frank

  1. Looks to me like this might be the corner of Wright and Palafox, as that looks like Christ Church on the left. What is interesting here is NOT the road, or the homes, or the brick street, but the prominent telephone pole! Pensacola got telephone service in 1902 (the same year that (new) Christ Church was built, and was quite proud that it was so progressive!
