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.


Last Gasp of Fall Color

Tree off Warner Ave Scott City 11-08-2013This fall wasn’t as colorful as last year. In fact, it felt like it came and went in about two days. Here’s a small collection of photos I did manage to grab. Most will have just an overline telling you approximately where the picture was taken.

The first shot was taken off the new Warren Avenue extension over Ramsey creek in Scott City. (Click on the photos to make them larger.)

The last time I was looking over the old Old Appleton bridge, a gaggle of teenyboppers were jumping off it.

  • I agree about the fall color as opposed to last year. I was expecting a dismal, brown fall last year because of the terrible drought and heat in the summer of ’12, but then fall colors were magnificent. This year we had plenty of rain and milder temps,but we just didn’t get the breath-taking collage of reds and golds. Rather anticlimatic, if you know what I mean.
