Christ Church Dance 3 _ RTP _ SFW 11 July 13

Here are a few photos that were taken at Christ Church on Wright Street in downtown Pensacola.  I am not sure of the date, but I know that it was sometime back in the 1950’s.  No clue who anyone is in any of the photos, but it looks as if everyone was having a good time.  Here are several more …

Christ Church  Dance 1 _ RTP _SFW 11 July 13

My guess is that these might have been teenagers that were members of the church, since this was taken ( I believe ) in the old fellowship hall.  The only information written on the negative envelop was ” Christ Church “.  If anyone recognizes anyone in these  photos, please let us know.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Southern Bell 6_Girls_SFW_FHP_15 Aug 11

This was made when Southern Bell had a grand opening for their building on Belmont Street in downtown Pensacola back in the 1950’s.  I have several other photos from this event that I will post later.  They really let you know how far we have advanced in the  fifty-five years or so.  If anyone was there that night and to share it with us, please feel free.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Just A Reminder …

Just a reminder for you to check out my photo blog,   .   Even though I have been using WordPress for several years now, there are still things that I cannot figure out how to do.  I just think that most people know my blog, but I have a lot of people look at this blog that do not know me personally.  They do not know to go to my site and check out my posts.  So I just thought that I would put a reminder in a post with a link and then I could direct some traffic over there.  I get only a small fraction of the number of hits that I receive on this site and I just want to try to increase my readers over on my photography blog.  Nothing earth-shattering, but a few new viewers would be nice.  Thanks again for looking and let me know if you have any questions or if something does not work for you … Frank

Nuns in Front of Old Hospital 2_SFW_FHP_July 11

Here is a group of nuns standing in front of the old Sacred Heart Hospital.  I do not know anything about this photo or why it was made.  My guess it was for some type of promotion or maybe a publicity photograph, however I know that when this photo was taken in the 1950’s, hospitals did not promote themselves like they do now.  Thanks for looking … Frank

The Fishing Couple …

Couple with Fish in Front of Studio_RTP_SFW

I do not recognize this couple or have any idea where they caught this fish, but I thought that someone out there might know who they are.  I would not doubt if this fish was caught in Pensacola Bay or it might have even been caught in Bayou Texar, just judging from the size the boat that this couple is standing in front of.  You see my father’s studio in the background … this was when it was located on Gonzalez Street, before he moved across the street to 12th Avenue.  Thanks again for looking and let us hear from you … Frank
