Elvis Stamps – issued by the US Postal Service in 1993

I’m not a collector of stamps but most anyone can appreciate a little Elvis to brighten one’s day. I have this small sheet of 29 cent Elvis stamps issued by the US Postal Service commemorating the life of “The King”. They are in mint new condition and haven’t been used. Makes a great gift for yourself or a fan. They’ll be mailed flat and secure and sent via USPS Priority Mail for free!

They are also available in our shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

At the Zoo – Lion Country Safari, Florida

Lion Country Safari is located in Palm Beach County, Florida. It’s one of the better “drive-thru” safari parks in the US. Here are a few images from a trip back in October 1993.

These next two images were taken at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens (Florida) in 1999 OR at Busch Gardens, Tampa Bay OR at Lion Country Safari – I’m sorry to say that I didn’t record their origin properly.

Grévy’s zebra

The markings on these zebra are amazing – if you look closely it’s actually difficult to distinguish where one animal begins and another ends when they are in a herd.

Here’s a great link to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens with some interesting info about these zebras.

Jacksonville’s Airport – 1947

I believe this image is from around 1947 – I’m not positive about the exact date but there are many signs that it’s at least the late 1940s. Eastern Air Lines operated DC-3’s until about 1953.

This picture was taken at a local Jacksonville hotel which had on display a series of historical photos of J’ville back in the day. The image is of an Eastern DC-3 parked on the ramp in front of the Imeson Control Tower at the Jacksonville Imeson Airport.

This colorized postcard was made from that image and was a well-known postcard of the day depicting Jacksonville. I believe the title on the card is wrong as the airport was not known as the Jacksonville Municipal Airport post World War II.

Capture

Make note of the Sailor walking towards the building (lower left) – a common site around the airport as Jacksonville is a “Navy Town”.

My country divided… again and again over everything! Maybe this is how Congress should decide the issues… accords and compromises are non existent under this political climate with the “Divider in Chief” at the helm.
