| In 1950, armed with her new Kodak Pony 135 camera and an ample supply of Kodachrome 25 color slide film, my mother, Caroline Francis, brought our family photographs into the color era. I am amazed at how vivid the color has remained over the ensuing 50+ years. She also took many photographs of LaFollette relatives, friends, her children's schoolmates, school programs, etc. I have scanned most of the slides and chosen many of them to display. I hope that the photographs will provide a snapshot of what it was like to grow up in a small town in Tennessee in the 1950s. I lived in a town where my parents were raised and where I had two widowed grandmothers, a widowed great grandmother, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Although LaFollette has not been my home for more than 40 years, it will always be my home town. I have arranged the photographs into various themes which may be accessed by the links below. If anyone would like a higher quality image of any of the photographs, I would be happy to share them as e-mail attachments. Write me with the details.
