Crosby friends for more than 85 years – Ludie Shourd (left) hugs Elma Black Finch at Elma’s birthday party in 1996. They’re shown 70 years earlier in the photo below.
These girls probably are at the Crosby Baptist Church, because they’re in their “Sunday best” and several are holding songbooks. It’s about 1926 and shown are (from left) Ruby Black, Mildred Sanders, Lorene Branscum, Ethel Mae Cowgill, Floy Elliott, Ludie Allen Shourd, Julia Branscum and baby sister Thelma, ? Burks, and Elma Elizabeth Black Finch .
