  • David This could be East side of the current BOE building.If you walk in the old front door there was a first grade class.That would be the large group of windows.The single window would be the boys restroom. It could also be the West side rear where the large group of windows would have been a second grade class and the single window the girls restroom.It is one of the two.

  • I just saw on 1-13 in the T-G where Joe Gleaves passed away.Sad when you look at a boy who had his whole life ahead of him and now he is gone.

  • I agree with mytaxesaremine, and I remember when Joe Coffee went over the dam and drowned.We walked the river bank for miles looking for his body.

  • Most of these young men went on to play at Central High School. They were a little older than me, but I remember them.

  • That was during my years at Jr. High School. I remember all of these people.

    I also agree with mytaxesaremine that this picture was surely made on the East side of the old Madison Street School. The windows are clearly metal frames. Jr. High had wooden frame windows.

  • FlaDon, I thought she was Donna Smith, however, I can not remember what year she moved away from Shelbyville. If that is who she is then she lived over on North Jefferson. I know that she did not go to high school with us.

  • FlaDon, another tidbit that came to my mind is that Donna Smith's Mother was a sister to General Douglas MacArthur's wife.
