Kings Sea Shack_RTP_1_28_13   SFW

This was made back in the early 1960’s.  A family named “King” owned this house that was located on the Gulf.  I can remember my parent’s renting houses like this when I was growing up and how much fun we had staying at the beach for a week.  It was always the highlight of my summer.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

  1. I remember these great little houses too. They had terrazzo floors and just minimal furniture and decorating, and were perfect for a few days at the beach. Now, the good part… I met the cutest girl one summer and we ate dinner out on the patio of one of those houses. Great memories!

    • Thanks for the comment Sam … that memory of Pensacola Beach and those one story, concrete block, terrazzo floors are the same for me. The only place that you can see something like that any more is down on Cocoa Beach. They have not allowed any condos and it looks like it is still back in the 1960’s … or it was last time I went down to that area seven or eight years ago. But I am sure that it has changed now. Please check back … Frank

  2. Bob and Frank, I think I posted elsewhere on this site about Laritz Cafeteria. I remember it well, Bob. I agree. The food and paintings are unforgettable. Bill Kreitlein, PHS ’59

    • Thanks for the comment … The Laritz Cafeteria was before my time. I can remember Morrison’s Cafeteria very well. The remodeled version, not the one in these photos. They must have remodeled the interior in the 1960 because I remember the floors being carpeted and I think that there were more booths. Thanks for the comment … Frank

  3. Frank:

    I greatly enjoy seeing the photographs you have been posting. They remind me of the “Wonder Years”. I was wondering if you might have a photo of the cafeteria that preceded Morrisons. I believe it might have been named Laritz but I am not sure of that. I remember that it had some great photos on the walls of the Pensacola snapper fishery. And their broiled Spanish mackerel was one of my favorites.

    • Thanks Bob for the comment … I am glad that people seem to be getting some pleasure out of looking at these photographs that my father made through the years. If his studio had not burnt down (along with most of the block) I would have really had a lot of interesting photos to share. But I figure I have enough to keep me busy for several years yet to come. Thanks for the comment and please check back … Frank

      As far as the restaurant before Morrison’s Cafeteria, that is a new one on me and I have not ran across any negatives with the name you mentioned on the envelope. Sorry.
