These pictures were made at my 4th birthday party. We lived in Miss Jessie Archer's house where the library is now.
The black smudges were caused by the fire that burned the next house we lived in.
I'm sure some of the Bearcats will recognize some of my guests, but even I don't know the names of two of them. I'll let you guess before I post the names.
I left the photos as you sent them, Jo. The old and blackened photo adds ambiance as you wrote about. Thanks for sharing. I have to admit that I can't identify anyone but you, although the faces are very familiar!
