Do You Remember?
Since 2010, we have been working on identifying a large collection of 1960s and 1970s photos taken by J. K. White of businesses in Morton. We need your help with the names and addresses of these photos. We will add new photos as the old photos are identified. If you are able to supply any information regarding the photos below, please call the library at 263-2200 (ask for Mary Lynn), stop in the History Room on Monday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you help? We are wondering if any one has photos or newspaper articles about an air raid warden observation hut which was located on the roof of Jefferson School approx. between the years 1940-1950.
