West Adams Street Businesses, Early 1950′s

1 comment.-

An Early 1950′s view of the South side of West Adams Street at the intersection with Laura Street.  Kay Jewelers had the corner location, a women’s fashion store and a Planters Peanut store are wedged between Kay and Beck Shoes.  Just peaking into the left of the frame is a portion of the Art Deco [...]

Woman With Stick

1 comment.-

  Studio photograph of bathing suit clad woman with a large stick.  Perhaps this was shot as an advertising photograph but the photographer left no information with this particular image.

Night View Rexall Drug Store Entrance

1 comment.-

A nice view looking through the front doorway of the Rexall Drug Store located at the intersection of Forsyth and Main Streets in Downtown Jacksonville.  Looks like you would be visually assaulted with advertising as you entered the store.  To make matters worse they even used the presidential race between Dwight Eisenhower and Adlai Stephenson [...]

Greyhound Ticket Window

No comments.-

A transaction taking place at the ticket window of the Greyhound Bus station in downtown Jacksonville.  I’d place this photograph from the late 1940′s or early 1950′s and it was probably the Bay and Hogan Street location which predated the current Greyhound station downtown.  Great informational signage.

Howard Biser’s Restaurant, 1950′s

13 comments.-

Located at 2300 Kings Avenue, Howard Biser’s Restaurant advertised itself as being “Famed for Florida Sea Foods” and “Serving the best cup of coffee in Florida.”  I can’t vouch for either but according to the sign out front, it was “Recommended by Duncan Hines.” This view is looking North up US 1 from what is [...]

McLanahan Amoco Daytime View

No comments.-

Another photo from the Loyd Sandgren Collection of the McLanahan Amoco Service station located at Main Street and Beaver Street.  A couple recognizable buildings peak up from the downtown skyline.  I particularly like the advertising sign on the wall to the left. The billboard has a particular connection to me although it predates me by [...]

Eastman Kodak Stores, Inc.

3 comments.-

“This is the Eastman Kodak Store before the government forced them to close, because you can’t manufacture, wholesale and retail.  This was on Adams St. Between Laura & Hogan Streets.  1954.”  LS The building still stands but it would be easy to miss just driving past it since most of the character has been erased [...]

RC Cola Plant, 1950′s

2 comments.-

“Here is the plant of the Royal Crown Cola Plant, on San Marco Blvd. near the RR Tracks. In the 50’s.”  LS Now all you need is a semi load of Moon Pies and you’ve got yourself a proper Southern party.

Tea And Spice At A&P

2 comments.-

A store display of tea and spices at an A&P grocery store. The chain hired Loyd Sandgren to photograph showcase examples and prints of the displays would be sent to other stores in the chain to use as a model display.  It looks like many of the old brands remain, only the prices have changed.

City Bus Advertising

1 comment.-

A photograph of city bus signage.  I’ll go out on a limb and say they really wanted you to ride the bus but did not want to pay for quality advertising to get you to do it.
