    I'm in the process of scanning a bunch of old photos of Santa Rosa Beach. My father came down about 1912, and he had all their old photos. He had an uncle that liked to use his movie camera, and stuck it out the window as he drove down through Walton county in the 40's and 50's, by way of Panama City Beach, then on to Pensacola. My dad's sister had a restaurant in Grayton Beach about 60 years ago. I can scan them to a high resolution and save to CD, or make available as a PDF download. I pesonally would like to see South Walton County History in photos on the walls of our local establishments instead of "Destin"! PM if interested or have suggestions.

    I think it depends on what you want. The file, or printed, and what size. I am able to scan with a resolution of 9600. And how many.

    So are selling the reproductions of the antique photos and not the actual antique photos?

    By the way, I have some old maps too. I have the old Tom Collins Map done around the turn of the century.

    check this out! Both of these houses are across the street from Gulf Place. They were built about 1952, one for $13,000, and the other for $40,000.

    You know I'm interested too. I'm still trying to find time to go through our old photos!

    florida girl, your dad built most of the concrete block houses out there, did he not? :cool:

    Okay, he's coming by later with the software and specifics. This will be cool. I'm sick of seeing "Destin" everywhere! Send pm with your email address, and I'll email you specifics.
    Thanks.

    This is going to take some time, I have the software... really cool to actually see what's in the photos, but I also have quite a few old movies. Now to get them off the reel and into my pc. Tony knows how, but have to get this done. I think what's on there may be what I'm looking for.

    hiya floridagirl - thanks for sharing these fab old photographs -
    but is it possible to make them a bit bigger/or maybe make
    them a thumbnail that you can click to view larger ?
    perhaps you could do a [dunno what it's called] but like an
    embedded signature across the photo so that nobody could steal 'em ?
    just a thought - would love to see larger/clearer images -
    thanks much - make it a beautiful day ! ;-)
    cheers

    Sorry, just following my instructions! Due to the difficulty of the internet, probably the best thing is to show them as a cd, or perhaps power point?
