Dennis Scivally Park in 1930sPosted Friday, June 4, 2010, at 7:30 AM
From the Southeast Missourian, Dec. 31, 1936:
One of the features that has marked development of the Cape Rock Drive, also known as the Outer Drive, is Dennis Scivally Park. Purchased and developed by the Cape Special Road District, it quickly sprang into popularity as a place for family gatherings and picnics on warm summer evenings. Fitted up by the road district, it has ample facilities. It gets its name from the chief engineer of the road district, Dennis Scivally.
The people are standing in the area which is now a children's playground. The photo is looking to the north. The gravel lane behind them connects with the present Brookwood Drive to the left. The background is now a residential area.

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
