Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.


Snapshots of Cape Girardeau

Ken Steinhoff 2013-2014 CalendarI keep forgetting to pitch my 2013-2014 Snapshots of Cape Girardeau calendar, but I’d better get on the ball if I want enough gas money to make it back to Florida.

Snapshots of Cape Girardeau is a collection of vintage photographs from roughly 1963 through 1967. Some were shot for The Tiger or The Girardot at Central High School; others might have been for The Jackson Pioneer or The Southeast Missourian. Some might have been taken just for the heck of it.

You can’t find a better holiday gift for someone who grew up in Cape Girardeau. (If you want to make it a super special gift, write down all the important family birthdays and special dates in it before you wrap it up. Wife Lila has been doing that for years and it’s always popular.)

How do I get one?

Cover of Smelterville book in progressIf you are in the Cape area, Annie Laurie’s Antiques at Broadway and Fountain has copies of both the calendar and my work-in-progress Smelterville book for $20 each. I’m even willing to bring one to lunch (Dutch treat) if you catch me in the next few days before I head back to defrost in Florida.

 How to shop at Amazon

Buy From Amazon.com to Support Ken Steinhoff

The gas and motel bills are starting to filter in from my trip and my bank balance is starting to disappear. This is a good time to make a pitche: if you shop on Amazon, click on that big Click Here button (or the one that’s at the top left of every page). It will take you directly to Amazon just like always, but it will contain a code that will give me about 6% of whatever you purchase without adding a penny to your bill. It’s a painless way to say “Thanks” for the stories and photos I send your way almost every day. Here’s more info that Kid Matt wrote.

How to order by mail

If you’d like your calendar or book mailed, press the DONATE button at the top left of the page and make a $25 donation. After you do that, there’s another box where you can tell Wife Lila your mailing address and whether you want a calendar or the Smelterville book.

Sneak peek at the pictures

Here’s what you’ll find inside the calendar. Click on any photo to make it larger, then click on the sides to move through the gallery. I tried to pick photos you wouldn’t mind looking at for a month.
