Jackson County Photographs

Jack BRANT and friends at Swope Park, 1938
submitted by Lorraine Fletez-Brant

"They are two photos taken at Swope Park, 4 Jun 1938, of my father and some other children who were attending a picnic given by a little girl identified as Maydelle Seeling. The children were all identified on the reverse of the pictures, and I thought perhaps some of their children or grandchildren  would appreciate seeing their forebear as a child. I don't know if it was a birthday party or just a picnic.
