Enjoy the photos and text on this page which are considered a part of the history of the Class of '52 era. While some of the photos may not be directly affecting a '52 classmate, the photos and text are, nevertheless, a part of our class history. If you have something that may be relevant to our lifetime experieinces in and around Centralia and you feel it would be of interest to our classmates, please email them to me at the email link at the bottom of this page or snail mail the information to John Mason, 720 Teague Rd., Marshall, NC 28753.

There are numerous pages of other photos, including some framed photos.
Look near the bottom of each page for links to all pages.

Following are a couple photos of parade floats courtesy of Elsie Gilmor Hammond. If anyone can provide any information about them, please email me the details.
