This Photograph Was Contributed by Ed Tyrrell, Class of 1953
|Ed Tyrrell entry:||
The first is the picture of the graduating class of January 1953:
The names (as signed on the back of my picture, and punctuated as signed) are as follows (left to right):
Another signature on my picture is that of Selinda McCaulley, the Principal, signed as "M'Caulley". There clearly are two l's, not one as shown on the website, but it is signed M' not Mc. Who knows why?
The other picture shows class 1B - 2A in 1945. I would have been in 1B from September of '45 until January of '46, so I assume that this picture was taken in the fall of '45 mad shows our class and members of the class that graduated ahead of ours, in June 1952.
The picture of the (June) '53 class shows three kids with whom I played in the orchestra: Judy Renshaw who along with me played the trumpet, Ramon Fox, who played the piano, and Ruth Reinholt who played clarinet, as I recall.
As I mentioned before, I traveled to Jenks from Germantown. Others made the trip from Germantown, including sisters Barbara and Ginny Johnstone, who lived 3 doors away from my family on Duval Street. Unlike Barbara who writes that she was jealous of the kids who lived in the Hill and could walk to Jenks, I loved trains and trolleys and loved the ride. I even occasionally got to ride with my father who was a route 23 trolley motorman.
When time permits, I'd like to add some more memories to the site.
