One day I got an email from Charle's daughter stating that she had found my website while searching Continental and showed it to Charles....he was so happy to see his past.He called me and told me that he had several of his photos that he had taken over the years and would I like to add them..I received the photos,scanned them and sent them back....Thank you Charles for your History and Memories.
This page is dedicated to Charles Rogers.
Charles was the station manager at Alamagorda, New Mexico.
He carried a camera with him at all times and took photos on every occasion. He took the photos of all the movie stars coming through his station. When Humphrey Bogart came down the stairs Charles was not ready with his camera so he asked Bogie if he would go back up and he did..the photo of him is the result.
