Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

A View from the Past

Most of the buildings in this photo of Crawford Street taken about 1948 by Robert McCord from the top floor of the downtown post office are no long standing. Starting on the left was the Merchants Bank, the Catholic Church rectory, St. Paul Catholic Church, First Baptist Church and the telephone building. In the background is the Colbert Hotel, better known as the Carroll and in later years as the Jefferson Davis. The photo was given by Marjorie McCord Strickland to the Old Court House Museum.
