I just wanted to take a minute and thank Deborah over at Airports Made Simple  for asking me to to be her ” Guest Blogger of the Month “.  She did all of the layout and design on her blog, all I did was supply the photos and some copy.  She arraigned everything and added some quotes to really tie everything together to make  the posts so interesting and readable..  She really has an ” eye ”  that gives her blog such a professional look and feel.  And all of the great information that you get from reading her blog is fantastic.  I have learned so much from scanning her blog and seeing all of the informative comments that she receives from her readers are so great.  She also does such a good job of connecting and communicating with her readers that I try to take something away  from her in that area.  I have received an increase in viewers to my site since see has had me on her blog and that sure has been nice to see a boost in hits.  So thanks again Deborah for including me in your blog … Frank

Eastern Jet 2 _ RTP_ 1_21_14 _ SFW

I want to thank Deborah over at the blog Airports Made Simple for allowing me to be a guest blogger.  She had seen this blog and was interested in the airport / airplane images from the 1950’s that I have shared with everyone.  I apologize for the title of this post, I could not think of a title that had a better ring to it than the lame one that I wrote in the headline bar.  I am sure that I will change it when I give it some thought.  Her blog has a lot of information for people that fly on a regular basis … various airline pluses and minuses, airport tips … too much for me to write here.  I included a link to her post on my Liberace photos, so once you get to her site, you can navigate around and see what she has and is interesting to you.

The photo above is one of several that my father made of an Eastern Airline plane on the tarmac at the Pensacola Airport back in the 1950’s.  I have posted a few other images from this ” set ” before, but I never got around to working this image until recently..  So this is a new image and for those of you who used to fly into Pensacola back in the 1950’s, I hope that it brings back some fond memories.  If anyone that reads this has some photos of the interior of the Pensacola Airport from back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, I would be interested in seeing them.  Especially the restaurant and the check in counter for Eastern and later National Airlines.  I ran across some photos that I had made from back in the 1970’s when then had remodeled the airport and I will post them later.  The thing that sticks out the most to me are all of the cigarette ash tray holders through out the airport … pretty considerate!  Thanks again for Deborah for asking me to be a guest blogger and please check out the link that I included in the first paragraph … she has a large readership with experienced travelers, so if you have any questions, this would be the place to ask them.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank
