Click on our profile for this historic story! Florence M. Murray sits in her regular seat - box 11, tier 21 - at County Stadium on April 12, 1966, even though her team, the Milwaukee Braves, had moved to Atlanta. Murray had been at every Braves home opener but one since the team arrived in 1953. This photo was published in the April 13, 1966, Milwaukee Sentinel. (Photo: S.

The Seward Dowding Municipal Pool is officially open for the summer! ☀️
Built in 1919 and named after Seward resident William Dowding, who was dedicated to helping anyone learn how to swim after some of his friends were swimming in the Blue River and drowned. The pool underwent construction in 2004 but the round pool was preserved. #sewardcounty #museum #nebraska #seward #swimmingpool #historicphoto

Yet another inappropriate Yoga Moment with @co_subie! A lot of people do not know this, but if you get good enough at yoga you can phase shift through normal space time. Depending on the pose of course.

The Summer Twin Drive-In theater on Summer Ave east of I-40 was opened in 1948 by Kemmons Wilson, the founder of Holiday Inn and bought by Malco theaters in 1966. The popular Memphis summer hangout gradually expanded over the years from 670 cars in 1948, to 1600 in the 1960s, and finally to the current capacity of 2000 cars. The theater also expanded from 1 to 2 to 4 screens over the years, becoming known today as the "quartet". Based on the films being shown, this photo is probably from 1962. Luckily, 21st century Memphians can still enjoy this quintessential automobile-age theater experience.

This #tbt looks like it's older than it actually is...and if you read our blog post on Tuesday you'll know the scoop already. If not, you might be surprised to know this photo was actually taken on East 6th Street in 1971! It's under the spell of movie magic for the filming of Godfather II. Head over to gvshp.org/blog to read the whole story and see another photo from the outdoor set. And check out archive.gvshp.org for lots more historic photos - this one will be up there soon!

Happy #NationalWineDay!
