Description

Photograph of church members leaving First Methodist Church on Easter morning. "Gay, flowered hats partially relieved the monotony of heavy suits worn by the Easter parade crowd which left First Methodist church March 31, 1907. Despite the fact that the high temperature for the day was only 45, two women at the right, apparently insisted on wearing more spring-like attire than the weather indicated. The building at the extreme right is the Christian Tabernacle, later replaced by First Christian Church. Church activities in the early 1900's made up a great part of the social life." Print from J. K. Stafford collection of negatives taken in the late 1890's and early 1900's which were in possession of Mr. and Mrs. Jack French of Cerro Gordo in 1954--recovered from Stafford attic in July 1953. Photograph of church members leaving First Methodist Church on Easter Sunday in 1910.
