Clubbs Junior High Homerooms …

leave a comment »

These were taken back in 1957 at Clubbs Junior High School on 12th Avenue in Pensacola.  I know that I have posted other photos from Clubbs before, but I just ran across these negatives the other day.  I still have boxes of negatives to go through and decided that 2018 was the year to finish that project.  Whether I will or not, we will just have to wait and see.  There is no information on any of these groups other than they were ” homerooms “.  I guess if someone has a yearbook they might be able to go through it and see if they were used.  However, I do not know if they were taken in 1957 for the 1958 school year or just happen to for the 1957 year. There are around fifty or so groups, but I only cleaned up a handful of them.  Mostly the ones that required the least amount of Photoshop.  The negatives are not in the best condition … sixty-one years have not been kind to them.  I really have no comments about any of them, since I was only four in 1957 and did not know any of the kids.  One of the male teachers looks familiar to me, but other than him all of the others are complete strangers.  With out further ado …

The man in the top row, far left of the last photo is the only person of all of the photos that even looks remotely familiar.  This photo was taken on the north side of school next to the cafeteria I believe.  Some of the other groups were taken on the front steps of the school that faced 12th Avenue.  They tore this building down and replaced it with the N B Cook School for Performing Arts or something to that effect.  So if you are driving around East Hill on 12th Avenue looking for this old building, you are 15 or 20 years too late.  If anyone went to Clubbs in 1957 or 58 and recognizes anyone, please feel free to comment.  I would be interested in hearing from you personally, so please speak up.  I plan on getting back into the swing and posting here a regular basis for 2018 and the future.  I still have a lot to share.  I just apologize for not having any information to share about any of these photos that I post.  Well, not any information but just a little.  I also found some Clubbs sports teams that I will scan when I get a chance and post so please check back.  Happy New Year ….
