Working on the Business and Professional Women of Kingsport Records was a blast. It was a great way to remember the accomplishments of women during Women’s History Month. I’m going to miss the great photographs, political cartoons, and convention souvenirs that made this such an interesting collection.

The picture above and the following one were both taken circa 1940.
Even the stamp on the back of a photograph can provide a bit of history about the town and its business community.
Pictured above are Ray & Trudy, Margaret & Harrison Ketron, Valice Hawkins, Joan Lamberson, Luke Barr, Ruth Wexler, Martha Carmichael, and Zella Bellamy.

On to the next archiventure!
