I see someone has added my brother Bhob Stewart to the list.
Click on the pictures to enlarge them. I took this picture above of an old man sitting in a chair. When I raised my little camera to take his picture he covered his face. I still wonder why.
In front of the Palace Theater. It is impossible to overstate the importance of a movie theater
in a small town like Kirbyville, Texas. It was our link to the outside world. Now they only play country music on the weekends. Back in 1952 to 1955 when we lived there we saw first run movies all the time. And the jukeboxes and radios played all the country and rock and roll music that was just beginning. Another link to the outside world. We had no TV set back then. But radio was great. WWL radio station in New Orleans played modern and old jazz music late at night.
That is Bhob at the blackboard with some of his drawings. Note the bolo tie.
