A History In Photos 1 (FGK 158)

I am starting a series called “A History in Photos”. I found this box of old photos of Grandma’s in my closet a couple of years ago. Some of them are labeled and some are not, so some days we will get to play “who are these people?” And hopefully y’all can help me out. I will experiment with some better lighting- the photos are in better shape than the scanning shows. Anyway, here we go!!

Edited to add: it seems taking a photo works better than scanning the photos so I’ve included those. And I’ve had some help from a cousin deciphering grandma’s handwriting which is greatly appreciated!!

CPR Station about 1913. Left to right: Mr Alex McEwen, other man is Charlie McGill (I think). Written on the side: you are welcome to use this picture if you wish.

    Hi Melissa. Thank you for doing all this history and sending it to us.. Again I would encourage you to put it all in a book so it is all kept.. You have done a wonderful job. I think I have all of them on Auntie Sheila’s I pad.. I think a lot of people would like to keep them. A lot of ranch history here..I would pre-buy several books to heip with the expense if you did it..Anyway thank you and Happy New Year.. Uncle Ted
