Above San Marco, 1940’s

No comments.-

Looking North towards downtown Jacksonville from over San Marco.  Late 1940’s.  Notice the cleared field where the original Prudential Building and Baptist Hospital were later built.  No I-95 overpass complex.  Things have changed a bit in the years since then…

Pork and Beans at the A&P

No comments.-

Among Loyd Sandgren’s clients was the A&P Grocery chain which according to conversations with Loyd, had him photograph displays at their Jacksonville store so that they could send out prints to other stores to show the way they wanted the products displayed at other locations. Anybody recognize the gentlemen in the photo?

Leaky Bucket


I have no doubt that there is a wonderful story behind this photograph by Loyd Sandgren but he left it up to us to fill it in.  Any ideas?

Coon Hunt

No comments.-

“A coon hunt near Jacksonville, Florida.  They put the coon in a cage and drag it through the woods, and then put it up in a tree.  The dogs are then given the scent and let loose.  The first dogs there win the owners the prize and trophy.” LS
