1928 South Hill Men’s Bible Class Picture

Elva Kidd White shared these two newspaper clippings with me. The first gives the year as 1928. The second dates the picture as 1920’s, but lists all the men’s name. Elva’s father is the one marked as “grandad Kidd”. For more information about Henry Kidd, see this previous post with his WWI military picture:

Here is a transcription of this 92 year old picture:

I've always been passionate about family history. I thoroughly enjoy stories, pictures, maps, charting, good sourcing, and looking for ways newer technology can help with sharing. I try to understand whole communities: all the neighbors, ethnicities, historical events and occupations of my ancestors environments. My work is divided into two areas: My Polish & Virginia families.
