Dating back to the end of the Civil War, the Eastside may be Jacksonville's last cohesive 19th century historically black neighborhood still standing. A stone's throw from TIAA Bank Field, it's also one of the city's most walkable and architecturally unique.

Another great photo essay!  What is the location and present status of building #8?

Nice work Ennis, but how can you do a photo tour of the Eastside without visiting the Pat Lockett-Felder monument?
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Agreed, great photo essay.  Would love it if you added addresses to each entry.  It would make it easier to add to my map

Thanks! I can't confirm the specific address but I suspect it was on Van Buren and has since been demolished.

Here's a link to the addresses. There's a ton of them, so it takes a little time to match them up with the right photos.
