The Cove, or Bunker's Cove, is a place that remains virtually untouched by time. Nestled within the confines of beautiful Panama City and only a stone's throw away from St. Andrews Bay, The Cove abounds with rich tradition and charm. Before tourism moved farther south, the area was a haven for those from more hectic locales, with local businessmen including A.J. Gay, T.H. Harmon, W.C. Sherman, L.H. Howell, and H.L. Suddeth promoting the area's heavily forested, game-rich peninsula. The surrounding waters teemed with snapper, flounder, crabs, and shrimp, supporting locals and drawing tourists, including actor Clark Gable. Amidst changing times, the neighborhood has survived and continues to thrive. This must-have photo album, filled with many never-before-seen images culled from a variety of local sources, is a fitting tribute to this peaceful community. Residents and tourists alike will discover what it was like to live, work, and play in The Cove of yesteryear. Snapshot glimpses of the past bring to life the neighborhood as it is fondly remembered-the corner markets, the shipyard and air corps neighbors, Cove School, and the Cove Hotel.
