Picturing the Past 172: Piece of the parade

Posted Wednesday, December 12, 2012, at 3:02 PM

An entry in the 1969 Central High homecoming parade. (T-G file photo)
I can relate to this shot: A homecoming parade entry proclaiming headlines including a "newspaper" and a "reporter." This is from the 1969 Central High homecoming parade as it turns from North Main Street onto the square. Look to the far left and you'll see a telephone booth. Remember when they were commonplace in Shelbyville?

What a tragedy our old buildings, with so much history, had to be torn down for progress. The hotel and all it's architecture was such a treasure.

I did notice Gerald Grizzell's office in the bottom of the old Dixie.Who is the young lady driving the mower? It almost looks like Judy Tillett.
