Pensacola Pier ….

I ran across this negative years ago and just set it aside.  Someone had brought me this print to copy back in the 1980’s and I made me an extra copy.  This is the end of Palafox Street and I want to say that this is taken in the 1930’s.  The strip of land on the back side would be where the Port Royal Development is built today.  No idea who took the photo, but if anyone has any information on this image, please feel free to comment and share anything that you might know.  Thanks for looking and please check back.  One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2017 is to try and post several times a month.  I have been busy with other ways to share my photography ( Instagram is the main one ) and have sort of ignored my two blogs. But no worry, I still have thousands of images to work through and post, so don’t give up on me yet.

  1. Frank, there is a great website, http://www.historicaerials.com. It has topographic and aerial images for locations all over the country. The aerials for downtown Pensacola only go back to 1965, but there is a topo from 1921. These might be helpful in dating some of the photos you come across.
    I really enjoy all the pictures you find, especially the buildings and street scenes around Pensacola.
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for the comment and link. There is another site that shows an old photo from years prior to current image, but I cannot remember what it is. If you know, please refresh my memory. Thanks again and happy holidays …
