Pictures of the Past #34
G.D. Fronabarger left the Missourian boxes and boxes of negatives. What he didn't leave were IDs for them. Pictures of the Past features some of Frony's images we've partially identified. We're hoping you can help fill in the blanks. Contact librarian Sharon Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you recognize a place or a face. Mystery Galleries may still be viewed on our History Page, http://www.semissourian.com/history/

Can anyone explain this group of cheering young women? Bill Stone wrote: "I can only tell you that I believe the photo was taken on the SEMO Campus outside the Campus School, near where Pacific dead-ends and Alta Vista is the cross street. I can only guess it was a summer cheer-leading camp."
