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.

Hutson’s 2015 Window

Hutson's Furniture Store Christmas Display 11-26-2015You know it’s Christmas season when crowds show up in front of the Hutson Furniture Store’s window on Thanksgiving night. It was a great mix of people: old folks in wheelchairs, teenagers on dates, young parents whose kids pressed their noses and hands against the glass.

I remember the display as being bigger when I was a kid, but EVERYTHING was bigger back when I was a kid. It was a perfect night to stand out on Main Street. The temps were in the low 60s, the winds were calm, and the flash flood watch doesn’t kick in until Friday night.

Here’s what the display looked like in 2011.

  • Okay, now I know it is time for Christmas! Hutson’s window is the place and the time to start the Christmas season. Now I can start to work on the Christmas list and then follow Ken’s “click here” button and get what I need on Amazon and ship it to the lucky people on my Christmas list! Life is good! Now I have to go out and surprise someone with a hearty MERRY CHRISTMAS as go out to Caladesi Island today to celebrate the rest of the Thanksgiving Weekend. So Merry Christmas to all, a little early maybe, but Thanksgiving was yesterday!

    Hutson’s has had a nice tradition. Being the model railroader that I am, my favorites have always been heavy on trains such as the 2011 window.
