Footnote: A special thanks to Judy (Osgood) Mills, Loring Mills, Charlotte (Magrath) Fitts, Fred Rice and Sally (Carpenter) Lamprey for identifying the Junior Choir photograph.
Fred Rice had the following comments: "Most of the kids in the picture were classmates, and several factors make me believe that the picture was taken when we were in second or third grade, which would be 1947 or 1948 [it actually appeared in The Hampton Union, Thursday, March 24, 1949]. They definitely look older than the first grade pictures I have, but close to the second grade pictures. Assuming that the choir was school aged kids, then it would verify that date, since some of those in the photo (Roger Hammond, George Sumner, Ray Sturgis, Harold Bailey) were a year younger than I. Also, I don't think Hollises moved to Hampton until '47 or maybe even '48. [February 28, 2001]"
