Going Going Gone

Going Going Gone

This section offers pictures and information for Jacksonville sights that aren’t very common anymore. In fact, they might not be seen at all, except in such places as history websites.

From white gloves to black & white TV, “Going, Going, Gone” could bring back a plethora of memories. Then again, it may reveal things with which you’re not too familiar. Have you ever held the reins of a ostrich-drawn cart? Finished your homework on a ferry boat? Tasted a malted milkshake from a soda fountain? Seen a shotgun house? Painted a streetcar in psychedelic colors? Or felt relieved when a diaper van picked up a smelly load of baby laundry? Get ready for some interesting reading! Just click on the photos to learn more.
