Retro photos: Florida meter men

Can you help ID these photos?


These photos of Florida Power employees were made from 35mm slides. “A box was in offsite storage and transferred to the Archives,” said Duke Energy Archivist Chris Hamrick. “The box was full of slides that had been rubber banded. Over the years, the rubber bands had broken – even melted in some cases – so now there's a box of layer upon layer of mixed-up slides.”

Can you help identify the employees? If you have details on any of the photos, email, and include the photo number or attach the image.
