Names and Faces – #156

156bNo, they are not photos of the same people thirty years apart. On the left Kathleen Williams and an unnamed friend show their style on the Russell beach c.1924 and on the right seven King siblings gather at the Russell School reunion in 1956. Many generations of both King and Williams families have been resident here, and contributed in a myriad of ways to the shape of our village. A great-great-grand daughter of the first Williams in Russell, John and Mary, donated these photos and several others to the museum, following her visit in January. As always, we have more faces than names for these images so if anyone is interested in viewing them and trying to identify people for us, please call in and help us out.
