  1. Frank, I recognize two of the three young women. In the last one of the three, Kathie Clements, PHS Class of 1956 is on the right and Shirley Faye Walters is in the center. I don’t recognize the other one. Thanks for posting these.

    • Jack … The first girl is Lee Raby ( I am not sure of the spelling right now ). Her married name is Hual. Her mother used to own the Sea Captain’s Shop which was in the same block as my father’s studio on 12th Avenue. Thanks for the comment and please check back. I will be busy for the holidays so I doubt that I will be posting much, but I am going to try to go through some negatives and get them ready to post in the new year. Thanks again … Frank
