Old Photos

By Susan M. Thigpen © 1985

Issue: May, 1985

Do you recognize these people? These photos are from a collection bought at an auction in Woolwine, Virginia. What looks like “Cora Martin” is written on the back of several of them. The collection is now in the archives of Ferrum College and they are seeking information about them to help preserve more of this area's past. If anyone knows the names of these people or the places where they were taken, please write to us and we will send the information to Ferrum College. Thank You.
