Yesterday: Brothers of the Brush, Sisters of the Swish, Part 2

If you think this 1953 Rowan County Bicentennial photograph looks a lot like the ‘Yesterday’ from last week, you’re right. Only the names and faces of the Brothers of the Brush/Sisters of the Swish have changed in front of the Conestoga wagon backdrop. This time the group is from Granite Quarry, not the Franklin community. Give credit to Ralph Walton. ‘I really enjoyed the picture in the Post the other day,’ Walton says, ‘and it prompted me to look over some of my items I have from this time. Attached is a similar picture of a group from mostly Granite Quarry. I thought it might be interesting to see another picture from that good time in our county’s history.’ Walton identifies the folks in the picture on the ground, left to right, as Bill Bostian, Jane Bostian. Margaret Ann Bostian, Ralph Peeler Jr., Sid Walton, Ralph Walton, Betty Peeler, Lee Crook, Cindy Eller, Arnold Walton, George Bostian and Bill Shuping. Standing, left to right: Harold Melton, Mary Gladys Fisher, Doug Peeler, Maude Crook, Will Trexler, Frankie Poole, Annabelle Peeler, Buddy Bostian Weant, Geneva Peeler, Mary Harrison, Ralph Bostian, Louise Bostian, Ed Cline and unidentified.
