Jacksonville’s Downtown Core, 1955

“This picture was taken from the Mayflower Hotel looking East to Northeast.  Almost all the buildings you see in this picture have been torn down.  The first street you can see in the foreground is Hogan.  About 1955.”  LS Actually quite a few of the buildings in the upper left half of the photograph are […]

Greyhound Ticket Window

No comments.-

A transaction taking place at the ticket window of the Greyhound Bus station in downtown Jacksonville.  I’d place this photograph from the late 1940’s or early 1950’s and it was probably the Bay and Hogan Street location which predated the current Greyhound station downtown.  Great informational signage.

Trio Of Borum Boats On The St Johns River

A nice action photo of three boats from Jacksonville’s Borum Boat Company in formation as they skim the surface of the St Johns River.  These wood runabouts had great lines and borrowed their distinctive fins from the cars of the late 1950’s when these boats were being made.  You can find more information about Borum […]

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 […]

Lake Marco Home

No comments.-

“The interesting thing about this picture is the man that owned it had to move away and he said to me, “it’s a great house and you should have it.”  I liked it, as it had 4 bedrooms and looked like a house from the North.  My wife didn’t like it that much and the […]
