1st Grade at Jacksonville High School

This is the 1st grade class of the Jacksonville High School 1923. Jacksonville High School at that time was located where Thompson Elemetary School is now on Old Bridge and Collage Street. The house that this is taken in front of is the food and clothes bank located on the front side of The First Free Will Baptist Churck on Old Bridge Street in Jacksonville. I obtained this picture from the daughter of Leon Margolis a long time bussiness man and friend to all in Jacksonville. Mr. Margolis had written the names of each student on the back of the photo and they are as follows:

(My Dad) Haywood Henderson, Lucille Kellum, Gertrude Jones, Mayo Bailey, Clifton Henderson, Hilda Petteway, Garland Arthur, Dorathy Hitch, Ruby Justice, Mary E. Hargett, Grace Farnell, Ruth Bryan, Dewitt Thompson, Jessie Kellum, Clyde Hurst, Millard Fletcher, Leon Margolis, Carol Dudley

This picture hung in Margolis Mens Store for as long as he was open. He showed it to me a thousand times. I know there are others that would love to know what happened to it.
