Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Pete Fountain …

with 4 comments

Pete Fountain must have been in Pensacola giving a concert when this was made, so as usual, I do not have an exact date on this photo, but judging from how young they both look, it might have been made in the 1950’s.  I have a photo I made years ago of Pete Fountain leading a parade down Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras back in the 1980’s over on my “Frank Hardy Photo Blog” site, if you are interested.  I tried to create a link for it, but never could get it to work.

One more thing, I want to thank everyone at the Pensacola News Journal for the nice article that they wrote in this blog back on Sunday, August 19, 2012.  Troy Moon wrote a very nice article and photo-journalist Katie King added some nice photographs.  Here is a link to a gallery that the PNJ created of some photographs that I gave them for the article.  I do not know if they have the actual article archived, but you can check.  Thanks again for looking and commenting … Frank

  1. The photograph of the line waiting to see Gone with the Wind at the Florida Theater brought back some great memories. The very first date that my wife and I had was in July 1954, to see GWTW. I was a student at PHS and she was at A. V. Clubbs. We’ve now been married for 54 years. These photographs are wonderful. I was born in the old Sacred Heart Hospital on 12th Avenue and Gonzales, and I was baptized in the First Methodist Church. Your father made a house call in 1949 to capture the first photograph of my brothers and me; my younger brother was only an infant. And there are other Frank Hardy photographs in family albums as well. Thanks so much for posting these.

    • Thanks for the comment Jack … I do know if you are any relation to the Lipscomb that was the principle at PHS during the 50’s and 60’s, but he was a very good friend of my father and was really good to him during his years at PHS. Thanks again for the comment and please check back … Frank
