Duplicate imges from the 1985 St. Johns River Survey

Duplicate imges from the 1985 St. Johns River Survey

Date
1985
Description
Six black and whites (plus negatives). Images were made from slides created by folklorist Figgen during the St. Johns River Survey. All were labeled P86-5. Includes image of Vicki Grimm making pinatas, fern farm (from S85-1654), Mexican Americans dancing at party (from S85-1527), Pinatas for sale (from S85-1857), painting of the Virgin of Guadalupe (from S85-1640), and of men playing dominoes (from S85-1096). In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
