Family Get-together at 500 Jackson St. Firehouse

. . . This is a picture of true historical nature. I can only remember of one "family" dinner where men and their families gathered. I can remember this one, but not the exact date or reason.


. . . In the rear at the comer table are the children. Included are: Taylor kids (left with glasses is me, to my left is my brother Red. To his left is a Butler boy (I think) and to his left with the striped shirt is Steve Milliner. The girls are of the Hutton family and perhaps the Butler. (Sorry I can't remember!).


. . . At the adult table are on the women's side: second from front Nora Fleming, unknown, unknown, Louise Taylor with black dress, unknown, standing is Mrs. Frank Bensley. The Men are: from front, George Milliner, Melvin Taylor, unknown, Frank Bensley, and unknown.

 
. . . The picture was taken
upstairs at the old 500 Jackson St. firehouse. It is a nice photo record of the early 1950's firemen and their firehouse.
