Mr. B and I know very little about the house that we are demolishing, except that it is old and someone like bed frames. While we were tossing stuff though, we found this pile of pictures in a box (otherwise full of strange fluff) and felt compelled to hang onto them. I mean, it seems sort of weird to throw away pictures of people who are probably still alive, even if you don’t know them. As far as I can tell, they are school pictures that would go in a year book.

The back if the brunette’s picture says,” To another Mary in the sophomore class. Take it easy and I hope you get everything you want out of life. Mary.”

Terry Haley, Terry Farish, Bruce Molsberry

The back of these pictures say that Terry Haley graduated in 1969, and Bruce and Terry F. will graduate in 1971. Bruce’s picture also says “FCHS,” which is Florence-Carleton High School (according to Google).

The woman on the left is “Mrs. Hirst, English Teacher. Moved to Seely Lake.” The blond kid, Pat, is probably my favorite. His picture says, “Mary: to a nice girl who likes Bruce M and went in the tunnel with him.” Bruce M is (maybe) the boy in the last set of pictures. This seems like the kind of thing you write on someone’s yearbook picture when you (a) don’t really know them, (b) are a cool guy and kind of a jerk. No offense, Pat. You might be a really nice guy, and you and Mary might have been great friends.

    in my old house (which is still standing) there is a doorway from the living room to the dining room. one of the doorframes has lines, names and dates of the former owner’s children and other young relatives marking their growth over the years. i just couldn’t paint over it, so it remains as it was. glad you kept the photo’s. everyones history is important.

    We’ve heard that our neighbor lady wrote a book on the history of our area and collects information. We’re hoping to give her the pictures to add to her collection.
