Signs of the holiday seasonPosted Wednesday, November 21, 2012, at 12:00 AM
Nov. 20, 1987 Southeast Missourian
A sure sign of the holiday season is the annual hanging of the Broadway Christmas decorations by Union Electric employees. Above Broadway at Spanish Street, Jerry McDowell, left, and Steve Walker hang the decorations. Union Electric employees annually install the holiday ornaments. (Fred Lynch photo)
Nov. 26, 1986 Southeast Missourian
The old-fashioned style street clock, the most visible symbol of downtown redevelopment in Cape Girardeau, fits right in with the Yuletide decorations on Main Street. But unlike the regular Christmas decorations, the clock is a permanent fixture here. (Fred Lynch photo)
The top photo shows the Cahoon building. At the time it housed a pawn shop and Army surplus store. The building was razed in 1989.

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.
