In the Park at the Andrew Jackson Hotel in Floridatown

Families and friends gathered here to enjoy each others' company, eat dinner at the hotel, and perhaps fish from the pier. Couples danced together at the "Blue Room." Colored lights were placed beneath glass on the dance floor to give a party atmosphere!

About 1938

Family Gathering

The same picture in the Penton Collection identifies the above as the Mayberry Norris 85th birthday party, with Mayberry Norris' back to the camera, and Henry Penton on the right.

This photo on the left is a family gathering of the Mayberry Norris Family, probably around 1950.
