Historical Images of Sanibel and Captiva, Florida

Throughout his life Charlie’s photographic goals have been to capture on film how people respond to their environment and how the natural world develops and takes form. Charlie picked up a camera when he was 13 years old, in 1939 and never put it down. He took photos throughout high school and University at Cornell. While at University, “Uncle Sam” came calling and Charlie joined the 10th Mountain Division. After WWII he married his high school sweetheart Ann. He returned to Cornell to finish his degree and while they were there his daughter, MaryAnne was born. (She can be seen in “Boardwalkin’ at Bailey’s”) After a long career in Sail Boat sales, and three more children, Charlie and his wife retired to his grandfather’s fishing clubhouse on Sanibel. The house was built in 1908 and is still Charlie’s home today. Charlie’s photos are an investment in history that continue to accrue with time, he hopes you enjoy them!
