Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

PHS  Football Team  5 _ 10x8_RTP   SFW

I found three negatives of this team in different variations years ago and finally sat down and worked one up.  The other two are in very bad shape and has sections missing and are in terrible shape.  This was the easiest to clean-up and make presentable.  I would have to guess that this team was in the 1950’s sometime.  Notice how each manager is wearing a white jump-suit with a number on one side and the abbreviation for “Manager” on the other side.  No clue what the numbering means or meant.  Maybe someone will know and be able to tell us.  I know that the author, Rick Fountain, who wrote an excellent book recently on the history of the Pensacola High School Football team reads this blog occasionally and he might be able to shed a little light on this group photo of the team.  Thanks for looking and if you know any information on this group, please share it with us.  Thanks again for looking … Frank

    • Thanks for identifying these people … I found these negatives a long time ago, but they were in such bad shape, I waited until I had some extra time to spend on them. I thought that they might have been have been a team from the 1950’s for some unknown reason. Thanks for the help and please check back … Frank
