This photo was shared on Facebook by a cousin (his mom is the middle person in the picture, Melba Harlan).
CJ Garriott – I have no idea who’s dogs, names; I would suppose it was our yard. Never saw this photo before! Pretty much no memories from this age.
However, after studying on the locale, this may be the lease northeast of Madison, where we lived when I went to first grade in Madison. Then we moved to the lease where I attended Seeley School until mid-6th grade when we moved to the farm. I don’t remember us having more than one dog at a time.
I do remember Gail and me going into the Madison school, she would go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, and I would go down the hall to my 1st-grade room. I would look back, Gail would wave, and I would then continue, comforted that she would be there when it was time to go home.
Bob Harlan – Our best guess judging by other photos around this one is 1938 or 39.
(Gail would have been 14 or 15, Melba would have been 18 or 19, Carol would have been 4 or 5)
