In Wide-Eyed Wonder ...

From the John Holly Williams Collection, LLF Library 

The library caption reads: 
"Large group of children watching Christmas gifts being given. Taken for the Leader paper. Date 12/17/1948."

I would know those pews anywhere.  These were taken in the First United Methodist Church on Cherokee Street.  

As to identities of those featured in the photos, not so much.  Feel free to offer up suggestions here or on my Facebook page.  I love the expressions on their faces, don't you?

As with yesterday's post, it seems post-war costume manufacturers were missing the mark when it came to Jolly Ole St. Nick.

  1. In the top photo, the girl on the far right, with hand to mouth, wearing plaid skirt looks a lot like Janet Smith.
