Firemen thrill Franklin pupilsPosted Monday, March 19, 2012, at 12:00 AM
Pupils of the Franklin School assembled on the campus the other day when firemen of the Cape Girardeau department demonstrated some difficult maneuvers as they attached a flag to the top of the high pole on the school ground. The firemen are shown in the above photo getting ready for the demonstration with the thrilled children standing by. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)
In the upper left corner is a white building with a front awning. This was Hitt's Grocery at 308 Louisiana, owned by Edward G. Hitt, according to a 1942 city directory.

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.
