Bronson Field 7 _ RTP _ 11 Sept 15 _ SFW

These are some negatives that I purchased on Ebay of local air base Bronson Field.  I am not exactly sure where Bronson Field was located, but I want to say it was located somewhere near Perdido Bay.  I might be completely wrong there and the people that I purchased them from were not exactly sure either.  I cropped this negative to show just the flight line and the plane that is taking off below …

The photos are nothing really special and you can tell that they were taken by an amateur, but the old cars and planes are interesting.  If anyone runs across anymore images like these on Ebay or anywhere else, please let me know.  I used to look on Ebay, but you can end up wasting a lot of time with just the shear volume that is on the site.  Most of it, to me, is a lot of junk / mess that people think are really valuable and exciting and I am not good at filtering it out.  Also, if you run across something at a flea market locally let me know.  Thanks again and if anyone knows something about Bronson Field, let us know … Frank

Billory Baptist Church, Holley Florida …

Billory Baptist Church Holly FL_RTP _SFW

This was the original Billory Baptist Church in Holley Florida.  I would guess that this was made back in the 1950’s.  I want to say that this church has been torn down, because I know that another larger was built in the 1970’s.  If anyone knows any history about this church, please share it with us.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
