Lights, Camera, Action!

No comments.-

This is another behind the scenes image from the film shoot shown in San Marco shown in this previous post.  It looks like a different angle on the same setup judging by the sidewalk and driveway toward the back of the car.

Party Time!

No comments.-

Bobbing for apples photographed by beaches photographer Virgil Deane. This wonderful image was one of several hundred loose and un-captioned prints that were given to me after they were saved from the curb awaiting garbage pickup. I wish there were more details that could be shared. Perhaps some of the partiers are still around and […]

Big Boat, Little Boat

No comments.-

As described in a number of previous posts photographer Loyd Sandgren had among his commercial clients Huckins Yacht Corporation and Otis C. Borum Boats, Inc., both Jacksonville headquartered boat builders that served very different segments of the boating market.  Huckins had a history of boat building dating back to the late 1920’s and concentrated on […]

Black Dress And Fishnet Stockings

No comments.-

“This photo was taken in my studio when I was on 22 East Beaver St.  The girl was a stripper, in fact at that time I did many of those girls.  My reputation as a stripper photographer was well known even as far away as New York.”  LS

Ernest Hinds Revisited

No comments.-

A different angle of the hospital ship Ernest Hinds tied up on a pier on the Northbank of the St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville.  You get a good sense of the working waterfront that covered most of Jacksonville’s riverbank up until the 1960’s.  This frame was shot during the 7 month period between 1946 […]

Terry’s Kiekhaefer Mercury Dealership

4 comments.-

(Update:  An industrious Vintage Jacksonville fan found a vintage postcard of the Motel Capri which looks like the building in the background of this image with a 1958 postmark. It was located at North Main Street and 38th. Street across from Evergreen Cemetery) I can’t find any clues to give me the location of Terry’s […]

Borum Boat Building

15 comments.-

On the factory floor of Borum Boats. The Jacksonville boat builder made wonderful wooden recreational boats starting in 1954 and Loyd Sandgren did much of their photography work, on land and in the water.  According to the information that I have found they started manufacturing their boats in the old Ford Model A factory building […]

Model With Chrome Nozzel

2 comments.-

Bathing suit clad model Eva Sloan posing with a nozzle atop a fireboat. I thought it might be the Roosevelt Blvd. Bridge over the Ortega River in the background but my friend Bill Yates who has lived in Jacksonville most of his life, much of it in the Ortega area, thinks this may be the […]

Veteran’s Funeral

1 comment.-

Sadly there is no information on this photograph which appears to be a veteran’s coffin on display in a family’s home. Flowers crowd the small room and “My Buddy” is written on one flower display’s ribbon. Two portraits of the deceased are in view.  One sits atop the 48 star flag that shrouds the coffin. […]
