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.


Down by the Riverside

Old and New Bridges 07 28 2002 2813 500x268 Down by the RiversideI wonder how long it’ll take before the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge stops being the “new” bridge and becomes just The Bridge?

I was going to take the night off for the holiday, but ran across these photos from July 28, 2002. It was dusk, both bridges were still standing, barges were running up and down the river and folks were gathering on the waterfront.
