Downtown View From Friendship Park, 1960’s

5 comments.-

“A view of some of the downtown buildings, it was taken from the Friendship Park in Southside.  I thought the park was great.  This was in the 60’s.”  LS A view of the Atlantic Coastline building, I can’t tell if it was before the signage was added or between changes of the name at the […]

U.S. Naval Frontier Base Mayport

Things That Go Boom!

IBM Proof Machines, 1950’s

5 comments.-

There is no information with this photo but the little sign in the upper right corner led me to what looks like the IBM 803 Proof Machine.  According to information from a site with information on vintage IBM equipment this was used to “sort, list, prove and endorse checks, sales tickets, vouchers and other business […]

Jose “El Grand” Lotharo Ready For Action

1 comment.-

Update on this previously posted photo:  This is not The Great Malenko as the note with the print led me to believe but after a heads up by Vintage Jacksonville viewer LP Steve who is obviously more knowledgeable about vintage professional wrestling than I am, it looks like it it actually Jose “El Grand” Lothario. […]
