Photos of Southwest Kansas/Oklahoma Panhandle
There once was a time when newsrooms didn't have Mac's, digital Canon camera, voice recorders, email communication or scanners.
Newsrooms had typewriters, dark rooms, note pads and pen, face to face communication and the only scanning done was with your eye.
My newspaper, The Southwest Times, has boxes upon boxes of old photographs that appeared in the paper decades ago. Old photographs? At one point it wasn't as easy of snap a shot on a digital camera and digitally input the photo on to the newspaper page on a Mac program like Quark.
What's to be done with all these photos? I don't know but they are sure fun to look through and post on the blog. Expect more in the coming months.
This would be from the Liberal High School Homecoming parade. Unsure of what year but the marching band is traveling down Kansas Ave. in Liberal the main street in town. If you look closely on the right hand side you'll see a sign labeled Bingo. It is still there today and I pass it daily.
