History and commentary about Jacksonville, Florida’s historic Springfield neighborhood.

Bill Brinkley Recommends

I may have mentioned this to some of you previously. I recently read this book, Love, Midgie, and want to recommend it to all AJ grads from “back in the day.” Much of the story takes place in the Old Springfield neighborhood that we all knew so well. And so many other landmarks that brought back memories–from the Springfield swimming pool to the old St. Luke’s Hospital where many of us were born. Written by a talented and accomplished author, Faith R Connors is the wife of Tracy Daniel Connors (class of ’57). The intriguing story is based on the life of Tracy’s mother. An added bonus is all the old photos and authentic postcards included in the book. I think you can find ordering info on their website Check it out!
