A costume ball for The Little Theatre in San Marco.  According to the note left behind by Loyd Sandgren the photograph was taken around 1949 and the party theme was famous people. Mahatma Gandhi does not look all that thrilled to be there but Pan has his flute and seems ready to party.

Young Love

1 comment.-

One of the more playful images from the box of Virgil Deane’s photographs that I received. Seemed appropriate for a Valentine’s Day post.  Anyone at Jacksonville’s beaches know the identity of these young and somewhat reluctant models?

Bride and Groom?

3 comments.-

This is one of the more unusual photographs found in Loyd Sandgren’s collection of wedding photos.  I can only speculate that this is the new bride with her groom who is playing dress up for the amusement of the rest of the family.  If that is not it, then this was not the classic Ozzie and […]

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 […]

Bride With Wedding Gifts
