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.


Coming Into Jonesboro

Jonesboro IL 04-12-2015My world is divided into categories:

  1. Stuff I don’t notice
  2. Stuff that is interesting enough to think about stopping to shoot
  3. Stuff I stop to shoot
  4. Stuff I shoot and figure out what it is

This building got promoted

Now that I’ve been going through Jonesboro,Ill., on the way to Athens, Ohio, on a more or less regular basis, I’ve been noticing this tiny building as you come into the town (which you usually hear as Anna-Jonesboro, even though they are separate entities).

It has long been on my Number 2 list, but yesterday I promoted it to Number 3 and pulled off long enough to bang off a couple of frames. I was in too much of a hurry to knock on doors to advance it to Number 4.

It’s sort of like this odd building in Glouster, Ohio.
