I remember going down to st. Petersburg Pier and have a picture of me on the Bounty it was really nice back then h
I would definitely bank there!
Well said Sam and Ken. I visited a plantation in SC where they actually listed the slaves names, at least the ones they knew of. The tour guides didn't realize the importance of this so I made mention of its significance after they had initially walked right past it on the tour. We all went back and read it... There was even some sobbing. I hope they still make note of the slave names and credit their back breaking free labor/frequent abuse on future tours but it's doubtful. Felt as if they were giving me lip service as most dolts just don't care and the state isn't exactly proud of its darkest chapter. The whole subject of what slaves endured was skimmed over.
My Aunt's fiancee is in RdJ, Brazil now as an Olympic photog. He'd love this area. I absolutely adore the Cross detail on the light fixture--beauty in B&W.
Agreed! Postcard quality.
I just saw this now... We're looking forward to driving past and admiring this beautiful home and the restoration efforts which have been done since this last post of Ken's in 2012. Bless all of you preservationists! It's been tough moving here from Chicago and having to seek out beautiful vintage architecture which we were able to take as a matter of course in Chicago!! WE NEED MORE ACTIVE PRESERVATIONISTS IN FL. The masses are so into having everything new here, sadly, even here in the Clearwater/Safety Harbor/Dunedin areas!! Vintage, well-preserved homes and edifices are few and far between... It doesn't make sense.
I'm so happy to hear it's being preserved!! Love your photos.
Very nice view, like, regards
