Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Bayview Park …

with 4 comments

This photo above of Bayview Park must have been made in the early 1900’s, maybe around 1910 or so.  My father obviously did not make this photo, but he had a negative of the image.  Someone must have brought the photo into the studio and had a copy print made.  I have not seen very photos of the old Bayview Park and I thought that it looked interesting.  Notice the old Model A’s in the parking lot on the left hand side.  I can remember my father talking about going swimming there at Bayview Park when they moved here in 1925 from Muscogee Florida.  All comments are appreciated … Thanks for looking …

  1. I took swimming lessons at Bayview in the mid-60’s. My grandmother lived a few blocks away on Lee Street, and she or my father would take me to play on the playground, which was my favorite playground in Pensacola, having both the “merry-go-round” and “teeter-totter.” At that time the water there was clean enough in which to swim.

  2. My family called Bayview “Old Glory Hole”…I don’t know why and I hope it isn’t offensive

    • Thanks for the comment … I have never heard Bayview Park, or for that matter Bayou Texar, called ” Old Glory Hole ” and I do not think that it is offensive. It seems that back in the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, a lot of things had a nickname back then. Thanks again and maybe someone else out there might have heard a nickname for Bayview, too.
