USO 1 _ RTP_ 18 Dec 14 _ SFW

I do not know what the ceremony here portrays, but it looks like it might be a July 4th celebration since I see some lady dressed up as the Statue of Liberty.  The ceremony looks as if it were held in the building on Spring Street that was once the USO Building.  I think it now is a storage / supply building that Escambia County uses for surplus office equipment.  There were 15 or 16 negatives in the envelope, but I only bothered to work-up around four of the negatives … I might do some more later, but they seem to be all about the same as these.  I am sure that some of you will recognize some familiar faces in these crowd shots.  I am also not exactly sure of the date.  Sometime in the 1950’s seems like a good guess …

OK, I had done five of these images, so  I believe that I have eleven more to do.  I have a box full of new negatives to scan and I will start work on them next year.  I am up to almost four hundred posts and I am not sure of the total number of prints, but I would guess close to eight hundred images.  I hope everyone has a safe and happy new years.  This year 2014 has really flown by, however 2015 is starting out slow for me.  Please check back and if anyone recognizes any of these individuals let us know … Frank
