Class at high school

Look at these eager children!  This is a photo made in front of Searcy High School, the old one that burned down.  Once again, correct me in comments if I am wrong.  This photo was provided by my friend Anita.  Searcy AR is a progressive city of approximately 20,000 residents.  I don't know any of the children and don't know the year but I love looking at the clothing worn by the kids.  I can almost assure you that none of the jeans were bought with a "worn" look built in.  They were probably worn by brothers or sisters and handed down.  Fascinating look at the past, isn't it?

This picture was made in 1949, we were in the 7th grade.   The white building in the background was either the "canning" factory or Thompson's Pecan shed. If it was the canning place, people would take their vegs. or whatever they were canning there and use the equipment...I assume for a small fee, then take their canned goods back to their homes.  If Thompson's then people (all ladies, as I remember) worked there picking out pecans.

Anita, I remember when the canning plants or factories were the place for our parents to go and simplify their canning chores.  I'm glad I don't have to visit one.  Thanks for enlightening us on the date.

Charles B., weren't those kids beautiful.  Is that why you meant they couldn't have been you?  :)

Charles M., thanks for admitting one of those beautiful kids could have been you.  I think Charles B was saying he'd have been the kid "playing hookey"  or something mischievous.  : )

Charles, THAT WAS NOT A COMPLIMENT!   You are still an unruly child!!  But a truly funny one!

Those were the good old days, the kids didn't have to have name brand clothing!
