Photo Feature From the Collection of Homer Barnwell
Public Square, 1930s
Mr. Homer Barnwell of Jacksonville provided this aerial image
of the Jacksonville public square taken in the 1930s. The photo
at top shows an overall view looking northwest. (All other photos
on this page were derived from the master image.) Third photo,
below, shows King Hardware with Princess Theater to the adjacent
right and a poolhall next door. The bottom image is a closeup
of Dr. Francis's office. For more historic scenes from Jacksonville
