Clubbs Coranation 3  _ RTP_24 Sept 14 _ SFW

The date ( I believe ) is 1956.  Back then, schools used to put on these elaborate coronations and would crown a king and queen of the school.  Clubbs Junior High School on 12th Avenue used to have a ” King and Queen of Clubbs ” and would also have a court.  I would assume it was pretty much a popularity contest … the athletes and cheerleaders would make up half of court usually.  I did not know this until I talked to a friend of mine whose sister just happened to have been elected the ” Queen of Clubbs ”  a year or two after this coronation.  By the time I was in junior high school in the mid-1960’s, these coronations were a thing of the past.  At least they were at Wokman Junior High where I went.  This event was held in the auditorium at Clubbs.  By the time my friend’s sister was queen it had gotten so large, it was moved to the Municipal Auditorium in downtown Pensacola.  I have several bags full of negatives that I will go through and post in the future.  Here is the other view that I worked up …
