In the second photo, which could be called "a study in light and shadows", we see the ornate soda fountain and also tables, chairs, and furnishings inside Tom's Drug Store. Facing the front from midway, the reflection at the right was from a slanted glass showcase. A coke bottle and the image of someone can be seen faintly. The photo would not completely restore.
The clipping of Bobby Greene shows just one of his accomplishments. A friendly, well-liked member of BHS, Bobby graduated with honors from school and college. Bobby, I understand you read the blog regularly and may have some photos that we would like to see. If you could, we would certainly like for you to share a few to post here. Thanks in advance.
Fourth, Buddy Miller and Frieda Rogers on the front middle step landing at BHS.
Last, our old and dear First Baptist Church on West Main Street. It was a very "cool" place in more ways than one; it was never locked in those days, and in the summertime we would beat the sultry heat of day by playing hide-and-seek in the cool, cavernous basement.
If you recall, the steps from outside to the basement were in the little white "doghouse" entryway at the end of the concrete walk in the left of the photo behind the information marquee sign. The sign can almost be read in an enlarged copy of the photo.
Photos from Betty Massengill, Cynthia Mink, and Clarene Evans. Thanks, all.
