Linden, Box 96, 1955


Box 96 has two more descriptions written on the side.

“Linden Play, March 21, 1955” and “Linden Graduation, June 12, 1955”.

Since there are three dates on the box, with only 22 negatives in total, it appears to me that Joel is only photographing sporadic events.

That’s quite a few images for the play. For Joel to end up in Linden, he either knew one of the teachers or a family member went to school there.

Let’s take a look at the graduation images and see if there are any clues.

Three solid group shots of the teacher with her class.

The girl in the above image sits presumably at left, first row, in the group shots.

This boy doesn’t appear in the group shot, so most likely from a different class. It is unclear what the relationship is between Joel and these two events.

We’ll cover the remaining 3 misplaced football images at a different time, after we discover the bulk of these matches.

Cheers !
