Various, Box 80, 1946-1951


This negative box is a catch-all box. Joel wrote on the lid 1948-1951, but I found at least two San Francisco negatives from 1946.

Sooo … here we go with the different subjects:

“Turner School” is the first subject written on the lid. I have no reference to any school with that name in Stockton, on the other hand, “Turner” could refer to the teacher’s name also.

“Turner School”, unsure about location and year

Top left young man seems to be having a lot of fun, every class needs a class clown to distract the other students !

There may be some good information in the above images for local historians.

Second subject written on the box is “Sail Boats, Santa Cruz”. We have seen multiple photo shoot results from the Santa Cruz area in the past. Joel’s aunt Amy Pahl owns a house in the Santa Cruz area.

Joel has an affinity for boats since he picked up a camera.

The last subject written on the box is “Football”. There’s only one negative related to football in this box, so they might have been moved over the years.

COP Football, Tigers versus unidentified team, 1948-1951,

it’s obvious that the above negative had a film holder light leak, and is not really usable for printing, but Joel kept everything.

Next slide is from a Homecoming Parade in Stockton. The image was taken in front of the Fox Theater, now Bob Hope Theater. Based on the marquis, we know for sure this image was taken sometime 1946. The film Saratoga Trunk is from November 1945, and played mostly in 1946.

Patty Lou, Homecoming Parade, 1946

Patty Lou Peters was a native of Stockton and the Mardi Gras representative for Epsilon Lambda Sigma. She made a name for herself singing for various campus affairs. She was a sophomore in 1946

More of this box in next blog post.

Cheers !
