Terry’s Kiekhaefer Mercury Dealership

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

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 […]

Chris-Craft

A beautiful boat full of beautiful women.  The matching hats on the ladies are a nice touch.  Don’t know any details on this particular shot and it is the only image of a Chris-Craft boat I’ve noticed in the collection but it looks like it may have been shot on the Ortega River looking South […]

Big Skis

No comments.-

Great haircut, snazzy striped swim trunks and massive water skis!  Beyond the obvious Loyd Sandgren did not leave me much to work with for background information on his photograph so I contacted Carole Lowe, the director of the American Water Ski Educational Foundation at the Water Ski Hall of Fame and Museum in Polk City, […]

Boat People

“This shows how the boat could sleep six. Of course you could not be too big and do that.  It pays to be young.” LS This is one of many photos Loyd Sandgren shot for Jacksonville’s Borum Boat Company.
