Spent the day wandering around historic Downtown Pensacola, and found it to be an interesting and vibrant area. I like how Pensacola has embraced its history, and taken efforts to keep it alive.
So sit back and check out some photos from the historic district of Downtown Pensacola.
This was the location of that F.W. Woolworth store.
I have to confess, I took these photos on Thanksgiving which is why it’s so quiet. Actually went into Pensacola on Thanksgiving and did the Mirror & Laundry thing on Friday. (is this what they call literary licence?).
What I like about downtown is it still is a functioning area. Well no longer the center of Commerce for the city, it has become one of Pensacola’s go to entertainment sectors with its numerous bars and restaurants.
There seems to be kind of a french feel to a number of buildings.
The Downtown area has two squares. Each are thick with old oak trees and man, the acorns covered the ground like grass. At one of the plazas, ironically the one with the fewer acorns, were squirrels in the number I’ve not seen in such a small space.
Thought I’d take a picture of this before someone or some group gets up in arms and it’s removed.
Some other interesting buildings in the Historical Downtown area.
Some of the old houses found within the historical district, all in very nice condition.
Next to this house was an orange tree full of ripe oranges. So Cool…Seeing the style of architecture in the houses around here, I’ve come to really appreciate it. Simple yet with a hint of grandiose.
Did a fair amount of walking around (which is good) and had a solid day in the city. Drove back to camp and called it a day.
An example of what you would have seen driving down the road in the 1940s.
