Looking back

Steve Hegedus sent us this old photo awhile back that looks like it was probably from the Life magazine photo shoot over 60 years ago.

In 1949, Life magazine sent a photographer, Walter Sanders, to Cedar Springs to take photos for a feature on Red Flannel Day that was published on December 19, 1949. One of the most famous photos, that of an old-time photographer (John Pollock) taking photos of a group of school children in Red Flannels, hangs in the Cedar Springs Historical Museum. It was donated to them in October 2008 by Bill Pollock, son of John Pollock.

Does anyone know who the women are in the picture above, or where this photo was taken? Give us a call at 696-3655 or shoot us an email at news@cedarspringspost.com.
