Album - Dee and the Business School

Early Hair

Nearly 100 related snapshots were found mixed with a large batch of found photographs.

They are all the same 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 format. They all had streaks on the back from spending a few years in one of those "magnet" photo albums. It was easy to tell in the large pile of photographs which belonged to this one album.

Information on the reverse sides of five of the photographs only identify her as "Fatty" and "Horse" and "Angel in Disguise" So I gave her the name "Dee" because her actual name is unknown.

Dee and the Business School

Trying it in red

The set seems to follow Dee through a couple years of her school life and a bit after.

Teacher and two girls
Another girl

This another unknown girl. The photograph is important because there is a 1969 calendar behind her.

Dee does not appear in all shots but since these were all similar format and markings they were deemed to be from the same album. Further, she appears in some frames with people who appear by themselves in others. Sometimes a piece of furniture or a car or a location repeats in several frames.

The pictures and the five with comments on their reverse tell a bit of a story. I wonder where she is today. She would be about 60.

The reverse sides of the five photographs that have information are included next to the photograph.

Red hair and the teacher

Here she is again with apparently one of the teachers. He was identified finally as Malvin Sebree. Some of his school history was found. He is seen in several of the photographs.

From the history that we can find of him, Mr. Sebree seems to have been a fine gentleman and teacher.

Mr. Sebree apparently played an important role in our Dee's life.

That's the five with information. Not much to go on.

The rest of the group seems to tell a bit of a story but it can only be speculation.

Following are the rest of the photographs in no particular order. Some seem unrelated except for the format and striations on the reverse.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
