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.

Kentucky Traffic Safety Message

We cheated death once more. pulling into Cape in late afternoon. I tried to shoot a few frames of the Nashville skyline at the split, but decided that I didn’t want the last photo before (or during) the wreck to be of the Nashville skyline.

Kentucky reinforces safety message

Had I seen this memorial to Kentucky traffic fatalities BEFORE I got to Nashville, I might not have tried to shoot the skyline photo from a moving car. I pull into that rest area on almost every trip, but I don’t recall seeing the memorial before.

    At least it looks like you got the Batman building in your picture. I love seeing that building at night. We often go from Brentwood to Hendersonville to visit my nephew and his family and it’s always at night. My brother-in-law drives so I can check out the scenery.

    Cool shot…I always think I am almost in Cape when I am in Nashville…did you get and picutures of Kentucky Lake? And this is the BATMAN building…I thought I was onthe only one who called it that…now I have to find out what it really is named.


    As a “Nashvillian” (well, actually Hendersonvillian) since 2005, we have always heard it referred to as the the batman building…its actally the AT&T building (formerly the Bell South building). Glad you survived the photo op Ken!
