Grace Jones of Vicksburg submitted this photo of a meeting at City Hall in the early 1950s, shared with her by friend Toni Grego Maxwell of Texas, second from right on the back row. Only a few of the people could be identified: from left, Frank Garvey, Mayor Pat Kelly, unidentified, Charles Guion, Marguerite Boyd, unidentified, Marie Pantoliano and Frank Shanahan, at far right. Seated are Chess Finane, left, and next to her, Mervyn “Moody” Anderson-Smith.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
