Iris Chronis, the sister of Gene Lock (who was the original owner), gave me this wonderful photo today and I had to share.
Tivy Seniors, 1935 (The same year the old Post Office building where I work was built)

One of the funny things I noticed about this photo is how it was produced. Individual photos were pasted onto a board and then hung on a chicken wire fence to be photographed. That's a lot of work! All we have to do is slap a bunch of images together in a program and it's ready to go. Mr. Wheelus, who took the photo, had to get everything JUST RIGHT on that board before he snapped the photo.
