JOHN-FLOYD-PROFILE-PICJohn Floyd II

John, a 1975 graduate of Laurel High, has lived in the same house in downtown Laurel for half a century. Many remember Fyffe’s Service Center—the popular watering hole at the corner of Montgomery and Tenth Streets. Harry Fyffe, the pub’s co-owner, was John’s stepfather. A prolific photographer and history buff, he’s amassed an incredible library of images over the decades—particularly of the fire and rescue variety, but also featuring countless buildings and other landmarks all over town. A former fireman himself, he was recently tasked with scanning and archiving the Laurel Rescue Squad’s formidable collection of photos and negatives.

John has compiled massive photo CDs of his collection, which he has available for sale. You can reach him at royalbluelimited@aol.com for more information.

 

Postcard Collection

John may have parted with many of his vintage Laurel artifacts, but fortunately, he has maintained a wonderful collection of postcards. He allowed them to be scanned for Lost Laurel, and we feel they should be featured here as well.
