Cocoa Beach, Florida ~ 100 Years Ago

These 3 color pictures were taken by my Daughter ~ Beach Bunny for an assignment in her Photography Class. They are images taken at the Beach ~ Cocoa Beach, Florida to be exact. She took them a couple of weeks ago with her little "point and shoot" camera.

Cocoa Beach, Florida ~ October, 2009

Cocoa Beach, Florida ~ October 2009

The black and white photo (above) was taken in 1909 ~ exactly 100 years ago at the same Beach ~ Beautiful Cocoa Beach, Florida. It's difficult to see the Ocean ~ but you can see my relatives in the forefront. I was so excited that they marked the back of this photo with the date, place, etc. We have too many photos of people and places that we don't recognize and there isn't any information written on the back to give any clues.

That's Margaret Mitchell Wallace and her son ~ George Wallace with their friends in the picture above. She was always referred to as "sweet Aunt Maggie" and was my Great-grandfather's Sister. Then ~ my great Aunt Margaret (my grandmother's Sister) was named after her...... Margaret Cameron Mitchell. Are you bored yet?

Just thought it interesting that I recently found this old picture of Cocoa Beach, Florida that was taken exactly 100 years ago. Of course ~ the Beach still looks exactly the same but haven't the clothing styles changed......
