First Baptist Church Monroe

Here is another photo we have showing a group of children with their care givers in front of the doors of First Baptist Church, Monroe in 1964. You can see St. Matthew in the background, looking down Grammont Street. None of the people in the photo are identified.

This second photo shows the interior of the church in 1962 during a Sunday morning service. Look at all the women wearing hats!

For the next several weeks I will be sharing photos from the Bob Sale, Sr. collection that we have just begun to process. It is a collection of negatives from the late 1950’s through the 1970’s. They are mostly portraits, but there are a few historic photos he took of Monroe buildings! We are excited to finally bring them to you!
