Captured on Film #1

G.D. Fronabarger was the Southeast Missourian's first photographer, beginning in 1932. Numerous men and women have followed in his footsteps, recording Cape Girardeau's history one image at a time on film. Our latest historic photo galleries -- "Captured on Film" -- feature the talents of these photogs before the age of digital cameras. The galleries that made up "Pictures of the Past" and "Mystery Galleries" may be found at Comments or questions about these photos should be sent to librarian Sharon Sanders at
