Restaurant Inside Lane-Rexall Drug Store

2 comments.-

“I think this store was the Lane-Rexall Drug Store on Main & Forsyth Streets.  This was a good place to eat and they did a thriving business in the 50’s and 60’s. “  LS I believe Loyd was correct.  This image was probably shot in the late 1940′s or early 1950′s when Loyd Sandgren was [...]

Looking East From Lynch Building, 1970

No comments.-

“A scene looking East towards Arlington.  The year was 1970.”  LS Great early 70′s view of the far East edge of downtown Jacksonville shot from an upper floor of the Lynch Building looking over the roof of the old downtown library.  This predates the Police Memorial Building but the lot in the back right of the [...]

Levy’s Store At Corner of Adams and Hogan, 1960′s

No comments.-

“The Levy’s store in downtown Jacksonville, 1955. Note on the right was the Kodak store, the tall building on the right was the Greenleaf Building.  All buildings still stand but all the names and businesses have changed.”  LS Judging by the station wagon on Adams Street I would say this is more likely the 1960′s [...]

Downtown Aerial With Labels

No comments.-

“A close up of downtown in the late 1940’s.  The photo was taken looking South & East.”  LS An interesting aerial image of downtown Jacksonville with small typed labels scotch taped to the surface of the print identifying existing roads, locations and buildings built years later that have taken the place of several that are [...]

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 [...]
