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.

Flowering trees North County Park 03-14-2016When I shot pictures of North County Park on February 16, it was because celestial dandruff” was coming down like crazy, coating the ground and trees with white stuff. When I showed up around sunset on March 14, the grass was greening up nicely.

Trees are budding out

Flowering trees North County Park 03-14-2016Trees that were white with snow a month ago are beginning to sport white blooms.

I wonder if this means I’m going to be stuck with 50 lbs. of snow melt and a pickup truck of firewood I ordered a few weeks ago?
