Yesterday: Double take

Mildred Collins of Salisbury submitted this old newspaper photograph, which dates to the early 1930s, she says. North Main Street Baptist Church in Salisbury held a special service in honor of twins, as the church’s pastor, the Rev. Charles L. Fisher, preached on the subject, “Twin Boys.” Twins from the congregation were assembled for a photograph that night. They include 7-year-olds Lottie and Jane McCombs, who are standing in the front row. The second row includes, from left, Miriam and Marie Barringer; sisters Mrs. S.O. Sowers and Mrs. Carl Lanier; Francis Wagner, whose twin was dead; Lattie Gantt, whose twin was not present; and G.B. Thornburg, whose twin was deceased. Third row, from left: George Fisher and his sister, Mrs. W.A. Bost; Hargaret and Marjorie Holder; Anne Lou and Lee Collins; and W.J. Leach, whose twin was dead. Fourth row, from left: Albert Herrion and Mrs. Raymond Morgan; and the pastor Fisher. If you have a “Yesterday” photograph (before 1985) to share with Post readers, contact Mark Wineka at 704-797-4263, or mwineka@salisburypost.com.
