Hardy Negative Boxes 2_ Best_6x4_ SFW

Several years ago, after I had culled through about eighty boxes or so of negatives that had been stored in a room off of my parent’s garage, I gave sixty boxes or so of negatives from the 1950’s and 60’s to what was then called The Pensacola Historical Society.  They in turn went through all of them and put them in new glassine sleeves and envelopes.  Personally, I can not believe all of the time that was spent on preserving all of these negatives.  You are looking at five rows with around twelve legal sized boxes per row.  These are from the 1950’s to the early 1960’s … maybe 1962.  I think I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I did not have a photo of all of the negatives cataloged by year.  I personally want to thank Jacquelyn Wilson for all of the time and effort she spent on undertaking this huge project … you are looking at easily over 100,000 negatives / images and this is just from twelve years or so.  If anyone has any questions about any of these negatives, feel free to contact the Historic Trust ( their new name since they are now part of The University of West Florida ) in downtown Pensacola with any of your questions… 850-595-5840.  They also have lots of archived images that you can look through and purchase for your own personal use.  Sure is a lot more personal way to decorate your home, your office or whatever area you have that you want to decorate. I still have thousands of negatives and those are what I have selected to put here on this blog.  You can also contact me and I can share with you what little I know … Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank
