As a commercial photographer in the 1950’s working in Jacksonville, Loyd Sandgren would shoot pretty much anything that a client was willing to pay for.  As previous posts show he had an eclectic mix of subject matter.  Among the thousands of images in his collection are numerous room interiors used to showcase homes for sale, hotel rooms and interior furnishings in model settings.  I don’t know which market this bedroom interior was intended for but it looks like the polyester bed coverings were all the rage.  Polyester fabric was first introduced to the American public in 1951 by the duPont Company. The company was controlled by Alfred I. duPont who had Jacksonville connections. He and his wife Jesse Ball duPont built their Florida estate here in 1926 which still exists as Epping Forest Yacht & Country Club.
