This a photograph of the first Medical Center Clinic that is located over on Palafox Street.  It has been abandoned for years and has really fallen into a state of disrepair.   The original scan is posted below …

Medical Center 4_No Retouching  _SFW_ Dec 2012

As you can tell, I removed the people from the side of the building and the telephone poll out front.  I probably would also have removed the street sign next to the telephone, but I wasted to much time on the telephone pole.  For future reference … there is not a magic wand in Photoshop that magically removes people and objects without leaving any traces.  It takes a lot of selecting, cutting, pasting, masking and blending to get these photos to look like the top photo.  Most people do not realize hoe much work is entailed to get all of this to blend seamlessly and to look believable.  I have shown one image of the Hotel San Carlos that I have a before and after view … at some point I might put together all of the steps involved in creating these images.  Thanks for looking and let me hear what you think … Frank

  1. I can remember going to see a urologist, Dr. Allen Miller in this building. Dr. Miller’s son, also named Allen was a successful amateur golfer and played on the Walker Cup team in the 1960’s and 70’s, He also played on the PGA tour for a few years in the 70’s and 80’s, but didn’t have a lot of success.

  2. I remember going to the doctor here, Dr. Anderson (“Dr. Andy”, I called him) was my pediatrician. There was a big counter downstairs, and I was too little to see over the top.

  4. Well I’ll always have found memory of this place! My first conscious memory of a doctor. Dr. Wolf, Ear Nose and Throat, jamming a thin silver vacumn tube into my ear for an earache. It hurt worse than the ear ache when it hit bottom,… but then later it did stop hurting. I was about 5. 196….
