Clubbs Girls 3_RTP_3 Nov 14 _ SFW

I thought that I would post a couple of photos that I have been sitting on for years and just never got around to doing anything with them.  I ran across the scans of the negatives just the other day and they were in good shape and they would not take a lot of Photoshop work to get them ready to post so here they are.  As usual I have no clue who any of the girls are in the photo, but I have a good friend who’s sister went to Clubbs during this period and I know that she can identify a few of the girls in the photo if not all of them.  I have more of this same group of cheerleaders that I will get ready and post later.  How many of you out there can remember a good old Clubbs cheer?  I wish that I could find some action sports shots, but all that I have run across are team photos.  If anyone out there has any photos from the football, baseball or basketball games, let me know.  I would be interested in scanning them to post on the blog.  Also, any PHS sports teams in action would be something that I am interested in seeing.  I found some basketball action photos against PHS and Escambia when Coach Beck was coach at PHS.  I will find them and post them in the near future.  One more thing, if anyone out there has any photos of the PHS teams in action let me know, especially the football teams of the 1950’s and 1960’s.  My father went to every home game during those years and I know that he was on the side-lines making photos for the yearbook.  If anyone out there has any of these old photos, pleas let me know because I would be interested in seeing them.  Everything that he had from this era was lost in the fire of 1975.   Here is one more of the cheerleaders …

Clubbs Coranation 3  _ RTP_24 Sept 14 _ SFW

The date ( I believe ) is 1956.  Back then, schools used to put on these elaborate coronations and would crown a king and queen of the school.  Clubbs Junior High School on 12th Avenue used to have a ” King and Queen of Clubbs ” and would also have a court.  I would assume it was pretty much a popularity contest … the athletes and cheerleaders would make up half of court usually.  I did not know this until I talked to a friend of mine whose sister just happened to have been elected the ” Queen of Clubbs ”  a year or two after this coronation.  By the time I was in junior high school in the mid-1960’s, these coronations were a thing of the past.  At least they were at Wokman Junior High where I went.  This event was held in the auditorium at Clubbs.  By the time my friend’s sister was queen it had gotten so large, it was moved to the Municipal Auditorium in downtown Pensacola.  I have several bags full of negatives that I will go through and post in the future.  Here is the other view that I worked up …

 

Clubbs Coranation 2_OK_RTP_23 Sept 14 _ SFW

This one still needs some more work, but it is passable for the internet / blog.  It is not as sharp as I would like it to be.  I do not remember what years the other years are and I will find the bags and look.  If anyone out there happened to be in the audience at this year’s coronation, please share what you remember with us.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Clubbs Baseball Team 1957 …

Clubbs Baseball 1957 _ 2 _ RTP_1_6_14 SFW

I have quite a few of these negatives from Clubbs Junior High School from back in the 1950’s and I will post more in the future as I clean them up.  I have a lot of these type of images showing a few sports teams, the band and several other groups.  I cannot believe that so many people see people that they know in these photos and I usually get  a pretty good response out of posting them.  I was only four when this photo was taken, so obviously no one looks familiar to me.  If anyone recognizes any of these athletes, please feel free to comment.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
