Midweek Mystery: Deer HuntersPosted Wednesday, November 17, 2010, at 7:30 AM
The date is unknown but was possibly taken in the early 1940s.
The only clue is the sign on the building: Stubbs Beer Garden.
The 1942 Cape Girardeau city directory lists Stubbs Beer Garden, 1714 Broadway.
The 1945 directory lists Stubbs Beer Palace, 1720 Broadway.
The owners are listed as Thad L. Stubbs and W. H. Stubbs.
Could they be the men in the photo?
A possible scenario:
The men went hunting and drove home with the deer to change clothes. They called Frony to take a picture of them at Stubbs Beer Garden. Frony sold them a photograph or two. It might not have been published in the newspaper.

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.
