Sales Meeting With Pouncing Tiger

2 comments.-

Nothing like having a pouncing tiger over your head to keep a sales meeting moving along.  The poster on the easel is for GE Televisions. There is no information with the original print but I am thinking this might be a stage at Andrew Jackson High School.

Porsche Chrome

An example of Loyd Sandgren’s commercial work.  He shot a variety of detail and product shots for Brundage Motors and later Brumos Porsche in the early 1960′s.  I wonder what a collector would pay for one of these in this condition?

No information with the original print but I’m guessing this stylish fisherman was photographed in the late 1940′s.  Nice Tarpon!

Barnett Bank Lobby, 1947

1 comment.-

“This is the lobby of the old Barnett Bank on the corner of Laura & Forsyth Streets.  This was their 70th. year, 1877 to 1947.  Of course now they are over 100 years old.  It was built of marble and it looked impressive, it looked like a bank of old.” LS
