Lights, Camera, Action!

No comments.-

This is another behind the scenes image from the film shoot shown in San Marco shown in this previous post.  It looks like a different angle on the same setup judging by the sidewalk and driveway toward the back of the car.

The Jacksonville boat builder made wonderful wooden recreational boats starting in 1954 and Loyd Sandgren did much of their photography work, on land and in the water.  According to the information that I have found they started manufacturing their boats in the old Ford Model A factory building [...]

The Lakewood bound City Coach Lines bus picks up its fur shawl wrapped, high heeled passenger in this staged 60’s vintage photograph by Loyd Sandgren.  There are a number of photographs in the Sandgren collection shot for the city and Greyhound bus lines from that era in Jacksonville.  Different time different fashion.

Ringside Action

More Women’s Wrestling action by photographer Loyd Sandgren shot in the arena located at Main Street and Beaver Street.  The details of the crowd, seen better in the enlargement below are fascinating.  The men’s straw hats, cigarettes being smoked.  Then there is something about the guy sitting in the right of the frame with the mustache [...]

San Marco Film Shoot

1 comment.-

There is no information about what was being filmed but it looks to me like a production shoot, perhaps some type of commercial, late 1940′s or early 1950′s. According to the 1949 Jacksonville City directory the Harry P. Davis Service Station was located at 2045 Hendricks Avenue, just before the San Marco intersection with Atlantic [...]

Wedding Day

Retro Belly Dancing

1 comment.-

An unidentified belly dancer in an unknown club.  One of two photographs taken in the same establishment from an album of Loyd Sandgren’s titled simply “Girls.”  Shot in the late 1960′s or early 1970′s.  Very hip looking integrated crowd.  The psychedelic posters on the walls add so much to the decor.
