PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORIES OF WELCH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND OUR HOME TOWN

Note:  when viewing any of the pages with multiple pictures, some may not appear on your screen after the page has completely loaded.  In most cases, you will be able to view these pictures by using the right mouse button and selecting "show picture" or "view image."   If that doesn't work, try refreshing/reloading the page.   Note,  I just recently realized some of these links are no longer working.  I think I still have most of these photos and will move them to another site ASAP.
