More Photos of the July 4th CelebrationIt is believed that the following photographs were made just after WWII around 1946 or 1947. The background gives some clues to their age. The pictures were taken before the bleachers along the first and third baselines were built and lights installed for night games. This was done about 1949 or 1950. Please let us know if you can identify any of the folks in these pictures or know exactly when the photos were made.
Spectators watch a "pick up" baseball game before the regular teams play. It appears that one of the regular teams is in uniform in the visitor's dugout waiting to play. This photo was taken from left field in foul territory looking towards homeplate and the grandstand. This photo also helps to date the photo. The dugout shown was replaced when the new bleachers were built. Also, the scoreboard shown on the extreme left was replaced with one on the fence in centerfield at about the same time.
Contestants in a sack race. We don't know if it is before or after the event. This picture was taken from around the third baseline looking towards right field. The man on the right, in the sack, is Wade Sullivan. Mr. Herb Jones, the Pacolet policeman, is standing toward the back, on the right side.
