The first unidentified photo I received from a patron who was in the library researching the Taylor family of Wilson and Nash County. The photo was taken in Wilson at Winstead Photography studio, which I cannot pin down the date for because I can’t find them in any city directories from the 1890’s or early 1900’s. Certainly their dress looks like the turn of the last century. One of the men may be named Wade or Richard Taylor.
Yesterday I went and visited Lewis Neal’s impressive Wilson County history collection that he has stored in his garage. This was a photo that he did not know who was pictured. The photograph was found in the old Drake theater on Nash street when they were cleaning it out.
