I want to thank Deborah over at the blog Airports Made Simple for allowing me to be a guest blogger.  She had seen this blog and was interested in the airport / airplane images from the 1950’s that I have shared with everyone.  I apologize for the title of this post, I could not think of a title that had a better ring to it than the lame one that I wrote in the headline bar.  I am sure that I will change it when I give it some thought.  Her blog has a lot of information for people that fly on a regular basis … various airline pluses and minuses, airport tips … too much for me to write here.  I included a link to her post on my Liberace photos, so once you get to her site, you can navigate around and see what she has and is interesting to you.

The photo above is one of several that my father made of an Eastern Airline plane on the tarmac at the Pensacola Airport back in the 1950’s.  I have posted a few other images from this ” set ” before, but I never got around to working this image until recently..  So this is a new image and for those of you who used to fly into Pensacola back in the 1950’s, I hope that it brings back some fond memories.  If anyone that reads this has some photos of the interior of the Pensacola Airport from back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, I would be interested in seeing them.  Especially the restaurant and the check in counter for Eastern and later National Airlines.  I ran across some photos that I had made from back in the 1970’s when then had remodeled the airport and I will post them later.  The thing that sticks out the most to me are all of the cigarette ash tray holders through out the airport … pretty considerate!  Thanks again for Deborah for asking me to be a guest blogger and please check out the link that I included in the first paragraph … she has a large readership with experienced travelers, so if you have any questions, this would be the place to ask them.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank

      • I’m so glad. I think you have some wonderful material. I do not post things I don’t believe in. :) You, my internet friend, have some wonderful photos.

    • I always thought that it was a reassuring thought. And that the pilots did not just fly visually or just with a ” road ” map. It still is hard to believe that when that image was taken, we were still at the beginning ( some what ) of commercial aviation for the public. I know that Pan Am and others had been around since the 1930’s, but they were not for the general public because of how expensive the tickets were. Thank you for taking the time to comment and please check back … Frank
