In Their Sunday Best: Knee Pants and Hair Ribbons

Old School Primary Class 1939

"This group of pictures were all in one box labeled "Old School." Most of them are copies that Mr. Williams made for customers. This is a Sunday School class. On the negative is written 'Primary Dept of Bathesada Sunday School.' And the date 1939 in on the picture." -- Library Caption.

Hmmm, based on the hairstyles and clothing, I would have guessed this photo to be older than 1939 -- just goes to show you what I know!  I love the smallest girls with their fingers shyly in their mouths and the two little boys who are boldly arm in arm.

  1. It looks like the old church at Bethesda, just east of Hazelhurst. My great grandparents are buried in its cemetery.
