About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Exploring the ever-astonishing Google Earth Street Views reveals that the lone streetcar track has been upgraded to a dual elevated transitway.

Name That Car

Where have all our trusty "autophiles" gone? In the past we could always rely on them spotting and identifying those classics, but it seems, not lately.

The car in this shot, with its wide radiator and oversized headlights, appears to be the same model I've noticed in a number of shots from 1910; like the ones at the Gayoso Hotel in Memphis. What is it?


Very handsome building. It's to be hoped that it does get restored back to its former glory. I like the hand rails and the double porches. Is that an "Underslung" at the curb? A very spiffy set of wheels! It looks like it is going 60 just sitting there.

400 N. Hogan Street

From Jaxhistory:

Built in 1902-03, this was Jacksonville's oldest social club for men and the seventh oldest in the United States. Teddy Roosevelt made a campaign speech from the front porch. The privately owned, vacant building is across from Hemming Plaza, City Hall and the new U.S. Federal Courthouse.
