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.


Atlanta Cyclists Headed to Key West

I’ve been neglecting my bike blog lately, so I spent a day a editing a video and pulling together photos of three women from Atlanta who camped overnight in our back yard on their way to Key West.

Before they pulled out of town, I led them on a ride on Palm Beach’s Lake Trail. Here they are in front of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.

You can see more photos of the riders on PalmBeachBikeTours.

    Cool Video! Now I have to make a “Welcome Lady Bikers Here” Sign for my yard too!

    • Terry,

      First, you have to cultivate an innocent and harmless look.

      Second, it helps if you don’t show up on any local, state or federal lists that prohibit you from living near schools nor playgrounds.

    Wow Ken. Thank you so much for the pics and video. Watching it brought back many feelings and memories. Though it was just a month ago..it seems like a lifetime ago. Touring changes you. I seem to be more relaxed and in the moment. Cant wait to go again. Your production is very professional. Your very good at this. Thanks again for this and all your hospitality.

    Can’t help but contrast the technology involved with these bikes to my solid steel, one speed, Schwin which ruled the road in Cape in the early 60s 🙂

    Well…any other ideas. The first two…well I cannot do much about…
