Mrs. Townsend has a very cool hat. It may be the sorting hat.

I recently found these pictures of the first children’s story-time at the newly opened Wilson County Public Library.  The pictures date from November 18, 1939 and the story-teller is Matilda Townsend.  The picture below is from the summer of 1947 and the story-teller is Sara Harrell.

I think this photograph was taken by a professional, maybe Guy Cox of Raines and Cox Photography
