Entre Nous Sorority in Pensacola Florida …

Entre Nou 7 _ RTP _ 7 Feb 15 _ SFW

As usual, I do not know a thing about any of the girls in these photos.  When I started working with my father at the studio, we used to photograph seven or eight ( maybe even more ) of these sorority groups in Pensacola.  Most were service oriented and were affiliated with local high schools such as Pensacola High , Escambia and Woodham are the ones that come to my mind as I sit here typing this post.  I am sure that there are more and to be perfectly honest with you, even the few that I remember, I do not think that I can spell their names.  There was one at Escambia, Sans Perine, that I remember photographing for many years … in fact, I believe that Escambia High School seemed to have the most girl’s clubs.  The above photo looks to have been taken at someone’s home outside on the lawn / patio.  The other two photos were taken at Pensacola Country Club.  I have no clue of the exact date, but these would have to have been made sometimes in the 1950’s.  Maybe someone might recognize one of the girls in the photos and will let us know.  Here are several more photos …

Entre Nou 6  RTP _ 7 Feb 15 _ SFW

I have some more photos from this sorority that were taken at this same time that I will work-up and post at a later date.  I do not remember when the Pensacola Country Club was laid out like this … the stairs are the same, but an entrance was made in back of where the girls in the front row are standing.  If anyone remembers anything about the Entre Nous sorority,   please let us hear from you.  For those of you out there that do not speak French, Entre Nous means ” between ourselves “.  And, no I do not speak French, but I am pretty fluent in ” Google “.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

  1. The Entre Nous photographs were made for the 1957 PHS Annona. The first one was used in the year book. I was in the class of 1956, and my brother in the class of 1957, so I knew many of these young women.

    • Greetings Jack and thanks for the comment. None of the girls look very familiar to me, but I would have only been four when these photos were taken. One more thing, I have put several Annonas on Ebay ( years 1959 and 1970 ) to sell. I still have years 1962 and 62 to put up. I list them under ” garconpoint ” if you might know anyone that might be interested. I have given several away, but we want to send my grandson to a summer sports camp that is fairly expensive and I am trying to raise money for it. And besides, I am also just trying to get rid of a lot of old photography equipment that I have accumulated through the years. I have not created a store yet, I list them singularly with my Ebay sign-in name. Thanks again for looking. I wish more people would make comments and share their experiences even though they might not personally know the people, place, event, etc. Keep in touch … Frank
