Rarely Seen Photographs Captured More Than You Already Know
Written by Jacob Shelton
This collection of rarely seen photographs capture a different side to history than you already know...with the advancement of modern technology, the photos from the past reveal more than we ever original expected to see.  
Take a closer look...now that they’re rendered in gorgeous color they’re no longer just photographs, but fully fledged true life moments in time. This personally selected collection of vintage photos that have been transformed from black and white to color will show you what life was really like in the past.
When black and white photos are colorized the process doesn’t just change the way they look, it adds a level of detail that puts everything into a different perspective.
Every one of those beautiful colorized photos has to be seen to be believed, but not all of the stories are suitable for all eyes… view these snapshots with discretion. 
No longer bound by the constraints of black and white, these gorgeous color photos capture more than expected.

Circus performer Harriet Hodgini, sits on the gate of a truck helping Otto Griebling, a circus clown, apply his makeup, 1935
There’s a camaraderie amongst circus performers. Not only do you have the same job, but you’re on the road together for months out of the year. You become one another’s family, so when someone asks you to help them put their makeup on you don’t even think about it, you just do it.
We don’t know much about Harriet Hodgdini, although she comes from a circus family. Her father was Albert Hodgdini, one of the members of the Houdini family circus troupe as well as the originator of "the Original Miss Daisy" with Ringling Brothers. The man she’s making up is Otto Griebling, one of the four clowns to receive the title “Master Clown.” Griebling actually studied under Hodgini’s father after coming to the U.S. from Germany.
By 1935 Griebling’s act was less high flying thanks to a back injury that suffered mid-stunt. From then on he performed as a silent tramp clown as he continued his time with the Hodgini family.
Seeing a vision of the old circus days is enough to make our hearts flutter. When you could toss down a few bits and see some of the world’s most outrageous performers. There were all manner of tents, snacks, and some times animals, it was truly an amazing sight to behold.

Look closer, the sign reads: WEAR A MASK OR GO TO JAIL. Spanish flu, California 1918..
In 1918, a horrific pandemic spread across the world. It affected the respiratory functions of everyone who caught it and could be spread through particles in the air - no one was safe. Sound familiar?
This colorized photo looks as if it could be taken today, from the masks down to the shoes - maybe not the hats. As frightening as these uncertain times can be, it’s comforting to know that our ancestors have been through it all before and survived. If they could do it then we can do it to.
During the pandemic of 1918 and 1919 people were asked to wear masks and keep away from one another as it was the only way to insure safety. That being said, there were plenty of people who ignored this rule - some of them even ended up in prison.

American troops on board a landing craft heading for the beaches at Oran in Algeria during Operation 'Torch,' November 1942
Even though these brave men are floating into an uncertain future it’s clear that they’re in high spirits. Operation Torch was a plan to draw Axis forces away from the Eastern Front in order to give the members of the Soviet army a break from battling the Axis.
At the time the British didn’t want Americans to land in Europe, they thought it would be disastrous for the war to do so in such early stages. The members of the Allies compromised and the Americans landed in Northern Africa.
Thanks to Operation Torch American and British forces finally had the offensive following three years of German and Italian forces dictating the tempo of events.
The always stunning Marilyn Monroe has never looked better than when she’s in full color. As a rising star in Hollywood in the early ‘50s Monroe scintillated with her trademark look of platinum blonde hair, pale skin, bright red lips, and a beauty mark. Close your eyes, isn’t that what you think of when you think about Monroe?
Her looks were such a topic of conversation that she practically created the concept of the blonde bombshell. Following her performance in Niagara young women started bleaching their hair and trying to find the perfect form fitting outfit.
Even though Marilyn’s mantra was “gentlemen prefer blondes,” she was actually a natural brunette. Her scalp must have been constantly on fire. 
A black woman watches as robed Klansmen walk in downtown Montgomery, Alabama, prior to a cross burning rally that night, November 24, 1956
How horrible this must have been for this woman to witness. In the 1950s the south was a hot bed of racist activity, but Alabama was an especially difficult place to be for people of color.
At the time Klan members were open about their membership to such a gross group, and did everything they could to terrorize anyone who wasn’t a white man. It’s so upsetting to think about the ways they oppressed people simply by existing.
Even though the Civil Rights movement brought an end to the Jim Crowe south, racism will always be a sad part of life - thankfully we don’t have to deal with guys like these walking around town anymore.
Mark Twain was actually a redhead, taken in 1870
We should have known that when Mark Twain said, “While the rest of the species is descended from apes, redheads are descended from cats,” that something was up. More often than not photos of Twain show him as a wily, white haired elder statesman of the written word, but this photo supposes that he was actually a ginger.
It’s fascinating to think that such a small detail can change the way we think about a person, especially an extremely important historical figure. When black and white photos are colorized it adds an entirely new level of detail that puts life into an entirely different perspective. What do you think Twain would think of seeing himself like this?

The blue-footed booby is a marine bird native to subtropical and tropical regions of the eastern Pacific Ocean. It is one of six species of the genus Sula – known as boobies. It is easily recognizable by its distinctive bright blue feet, which is a sexually selected trait. Males display their feet in an elaborate mating ritual by lifting them up and down while strutting before the female.

The bird in our image is getting a bit of a foot bath among the volcanic rocks on the shore of Bartolomé Island, one of the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. Once this bit of rest is over, the blue-footed booby may leave its perch to glide over the waters of the Pacific, until it spots a school of sardines, anchovies, or other small fish. In a flash, the bird will dive from the air, fold in its wings, and shoot under the ocean’s surface like a missile.

And those famous feet? Pigments called carotenoids are in the fish that blue-footed boobies eat. If the feet are vibrant blue, the booby is eating well—and more likely to find a mate, settle down, and maybe raise some chicks.

The City of Key West released the 2020 Annual Report, giving the community an insight to the accomplishments of City government over the past year throughout the various departments.
The electronic report is available on the City’s home page at www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov
This is the 11th year that the Annual Report has been an electronic edition. That means a “green” report and an important savings of precious taxpayer dollars. However, if anyone is unable to access the electronic report, the City can supply a print copy: Just contact Public Information Officer Alyson Crean at 305-809-1058.

What do you see for the future of Key West? How should elected and City officials prioritize what needs to be done to enhance our island? The City of Key West has begun its strategic planning process, and we need everyone in the community to help.
That’s why we’ve created a survey to better hear every voice in the community as we look forward. This anonymous survey will help shape the priorities for the 2021-2023 Strategic Plan.
The survey is available on the City’s website, or via this direct link: https://www.research.net/r/9LRFTZH
We ask everyone to please weigh in. Your voice matters!

Mayor Teri Johnston and Assistant City Manager Patti McLauchlin, on behalf of the City of Key West, presented the Keys Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) with a check for over $171,000 for rapid Covid-19 testing.
The money is a portion of the $1.3 million reimbursement from Monroe County for a portion of the losses experienced due to the pandemic. During last week’s City Commission meeting, the Commission voted unanimously to reach out to social services to try and put the money where it is needed most. In addition to the rapid tests, portions of the money will be used for rental assistance, utilities, food, medical, and other essential needs. United Way of Collier and the Keys, along with the Sister Season Fund, will oversee the distribution of these funds.
AHEC Executive Director Michael Cunningham said that the 3,000 tests have arrived and will begin being deployed today. Free rapid testing crucial for anyone who has been exposed and cannot afford to wait for a swab test.
According to Cunningham, the free rapid tests are available for residents of Key West and employees of businesses licensed in the city. In order to find the locations for the tests, visit www.keysahec.org and click on “Key West Rapid Tests.” Appointments are strongly encouraged.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Michael Palmer has lived and worked in Key West for most of the last two decades, and also spends time in Maine. Having painted professionally for 42 years, his work is well collected both here and abroad. Mr. Palmer is listed in the prestigious "Who's Who in Art." He has exhibited in many museum shows, art centers and fine galleries throughout the United States and Canada and his paintings are part of several museums' permanent collections. Collectors and critics alike have given his art much praise and serious attention.
Many of Palmer's works have an abstract quality that makes them intriguing. He depicts rooftops, narrow streets, bird's eye views of cityscapes or people going about their everyday business with an unmistakable architectural approach. Over time, his emphasis has been put more on form and design and less on content and narrative. The architectural pieces are wonderful studies in perspective, shadow effects, horizontal and vertical lines and broken geometrical shapes, always in a deliberately subtle color palette.
Michael is known for systematically combining paint and ink: although admits that he often begins a painting without any preconceived plan. However, he always finishes it with minute drawings in ink.

FIGURE DRAWING : Lothar Speer, Via Zoom. Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. January, February and March 2021
 
The Key West Art Center is happy to have Lothar Speer return as our figure drawing instructor on Zoom as a virtual art instructor. Lothar studied at The National Academy of The Fine Arts, Vienna, where he received The Johannes Fueger Medal, a European distinction in the field of figure drawing. He received his BFA from Chicago's Loyola University and his MFA from Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. His work was shown internationally as well as in the Rotunda of the Capitol Building in Washington and the Governors' Offices of Illinois and Pennsylvania.
 
His teaching is based on the classical drawing curriculum of The French Academy in Paris from the 19th century which aims at visual acuity and a methodical drawing process that delivers results. It promotes a simple and powerful way of constructing a drawing by measuring, applying angles, negative and positive shapes, and the proportionality of shapes, while expressing the rhythm, weight and flow of form. Although this is not an anatomy course per se, as a former instructor of Anatomy for Artists, Lothar will be glad to share his anatomical knowledge of the human figure when the occasion arises.
 
This workshop is an introduction to this powerful tradition for artists of all levels. Lothar has been teaching the figure for over three decades and delights in adjusting his feedback to each student's level and needs. He considers figure drawing the royal road to learning how to draw anything. The principles learned here are universal and can be applied to any subject matter and develop skill which is the prerequisite for powerful personal artistic expression.
 
COST: $250.00 January, $250.00 February, $312.50 March. Payable to Key West Art Center, (305) 294-1241. More information can be found online at keywestartcenter.com.

Blankets and lawn chairs are permitted with ample space to social distance.
 
Stringent safety measures and precautions remain in place to guard guests and the vendors who serve them. Masks are required, spaced line management enforced, social distance signage posted and the number of guests per stall limited. Booths are spaced out in one long row down the Mole facing the open ocean. Key West First Legal Rum Distillery free "Ruminizer" hand sanitizing stations are at the entrance. Organizers realize patrons may be eager to socialize but are reminded to not congregate in groups larger than 10.

FIREFIGHTER/PARAMEDIC LT. PORFIRIO “TONY” ARAQUE AWARDED 10 YEARS OF SERVICE TO MONROE COUNTY FIRE RESCUE 
Firefighter/Paramedic Lt. Porfirio “Tony” Araque was presented his 10 years of service award earlier this week. “Lt. Araque is a devoted, hardworking, and loyal fire officer,” Battalion Chief Alvin “Cab” Bentley said. “Monroe County Fire Rescue is honored to have him and congratulates him on his 10 years of dedicated service.” Araque began as a volunteer firefighter in Big Coppitt Key and completed his training at the Monroe County Fire Academy. In 2010, he was hired by Monroe County Fire Rescue as a Firefighter/EMT. He then completed his Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting certification and was assigned to Key West International Airport. Since that time, Araque has become a paramedic, completed the Florida Fire Officer Program, and was promoted to lieutenant. His most proud moment in the past 10 years: His son, Eliseo, was hired by Monroe County Fire Rescue one year ago following in his father’s footsteps. “I am honored and proud to serve my fellow Monroe County residents and give back to my community,” said Araque.

Rarely Seen Photographs Captured More Than You Already Know
Written by Jacob Shelton

Flight Sergeant James Hyde with Mascot Dog "Dingo." Hyde was killed when his Spitfire was shot down by German fighters near Nijmegen, Holland, on 25 September 1944
To be a pilot during wartime is to look death in the face and dare it to give you a try. It’s not a task for the faint a heart, and it’s one of those positions that almost insures loss of life or at the very least an injury.
Sergeant James Hyde gave his life fighting for freedom during World War II, and even if you ignore the fact that he had to leave his little doggo buddy in the care of someone else it’s sad to think that his family was never able to see him again. The knowledge that Hyde is forever a war hero must have brought some solace, but it’s still heartbreaking to think about all the men we lost during such an awful war.
Two Flappers and Their Dates. Chicago, 1928
There’s no type of person who symbolized an entire generation as much as the flapper. These young women loved to dance, and embraced a culture of freedom that many older people felt was outrageous at the time.
Flappers pushed everything they could to the limit, from the concept about how someone should behave in public (especially women), to the mores surrounding sexual freedom in a decade when people were incredibly buttoned up.
These women were famous for the outfits, with flapper dresses revealing a woman’s calves (gasp!) and containing plunging necklines that showed off more than polite society was used to.
A Women Air Force Service Pilot during World War 2
Now this is a cool shot. During World War II, the WASPs (that’s Women Airforce Service Pilots) were tasked with taking noncombat military flights, making them the first women to take charge of U.S. military aircraft. There were about 1,100 of them in all.
The WASPs logged more than 60 million miles in the skky behind every possible military aircraft. They were living proof that women can do everything that men can - and look better doing it.
After England insured a victory over Germany in December 1944 the WASP program was dismantled, but people never forgot the importance that these women played in the final World War.
Mark Twain was actually a redhead, taken in 1870
We should have known that when Mark Twain said, “While the rest of the species is descended from apes, redheads are descended from cats,” that something was up. More often than not photos of Twain show him as a wily, white haired elder statesman of the written word, but this photo supposes that he was actually a ginger.
It’s fascinating to think that such a small detail can change the way we think about a person, especially an extremely important historical figure. When black and white photos are colorized it adds an entirely new level of detail that puts life into an entirely different perspective. What do you think Twain would think of seeing himself like this?
Japanese-American college students during their relocation to an internment camp. Sacramento, 1942
 
Even with the sad fate of years in an internment camp ahead of them these young students are clearly making the best of a bad situation - that’s the kind of thing that friends are good for.
Following the surprise attack in Pearl Harbor by Japanese forces, the United States placed about 120,000 Japanese Americans and people of Japanese descent into in internment camps on the Pacific Coast. President Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066 lasted from 1942 to 1945, although at the time it was unclear just how long the internet would last.
This was an unfair way to treat Japanese Americans, and in 1988 Congress formally apologized to American people of Japanese descent and issued $20,000 each to over 80,000 Japanese Americans as reparations.

Christmas, 1910
Is there anything better than trimming the tree at Christmas time? Sure, the presents are great, but the best part of the holiday is all the buildup. The caroling, the hot cocoa, and catching up with friends and family… isn’t that what the holidays are really about?
The holidays must have been so much fun in the early 20th century. With the family gathered around a crackling fire and a real tree, the smell of spices in the air, if we could go back we definitely would.
The Edwardian era was a special time, with a peaceful mood across the world and a fashion sense that can’t be ignored it really does seem like the perfect time for wintry bliss.
Oldest photo of a tornado, 1884 
This is truly a sight to behold. Taking photos of tornadoes is somewhat common place today, and it has been since the late 20th century as daredevils and thrill seekers throw themselves into harm’s way to get a great shot. On top of that, thanks to modern photography technology it’s easier to get a clear photo of a tornado without fear of getting hurt.
That wasn’t the case in 1884. There were no technologically advanced zooms or digital wizardry to help a photographer get the perfect shot. In the late 19th century a person with a camera had to know exactly what they were doing while focusing on the light and the elements.
With that photographic acumen, a photographer was able to snap this shot that shows a twisting tornado in all of its eerie glory.
