This is a delightful photo taken by Mr. Al Felly of Madison Wisconsin taken in the 1970’s during one of his annual visits to San Pedro to assist in his San Pedro High School project. Talk about a new look and much development for San Pedro. In the far right you can see part of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School with its huge empty yard full of grass and Maestro Reyes’s home in the school yard. George Kumul’s house remains intact and is probably San Pedro’s most original building. The little building was once Maya Airline’s office located on private land which today would be the middle of the street. Then there is no more- no Sunbreeze Hotel, no Tropic Air Office, No Ancona Building with the many offices and businesses. Look at the photo below taken in 2006 and see the massive rate of development. Let the photos talk for themselves.
Note: The High School Students were awaiting the arrival of Al Felly, San Pedro High School’s biggest benefactor ever.
