No comments.-

I wish there were more details that could be shared. Perhaps some of the partiers are still around and [...]

One of the more playful images from the box of Virgil Deane’s photographs that I received. Seemed appropriate for a Valentine’s Day post.  Anyone at Jacksonville’s beaches know the identity of these young and somewhat reluctant models?

Boat People

A Pirate’s Life

One of Loyd Sandgren’s commercial clients was a company that made floating rafts that they marketed as docks, floating islands and in this case an outboard motor powered pirate ship.  There are a number of photos in the collection showing the various uses and they all appear to have been shot on Lake Marco in [...]

Basketball Tall

No comments.-

No Nike’s here.  They were cool before they knew it was cool to wear Chuck Taylor All-Stars. “This is the tall and the short of it, two youngsters looking up to the 7 foot 4 inch Miami basketball player.  This was taken in the Coliseum in Jacksonville, Florida. 1962.” LS
