This photo from 1974 was identified by Chuck Harper as the Florida Power Corp. System Dispatch Office in downtown St. Petersburg. On the right side of the photo (with hand on head), he said, is dispatcher Robert Willis. On the same side as Willis, Harper said he thinks the man working on the computer is Rey Garcia. Harper also identified those on the left as Assistant Dispatcher on Transmission Switching Desk Pete Mareske, foreground, and Robert Dresscher, the on-duty transmission switching dispatcher.
