Memories of the 20's

In 1916, Albany High School, a ten room class room building with two bicycle racks, was built on the southwest corner of Monroe Street and Society Avenue.  It remained AHS until 1925, when it became McIntosh.

The  1922, 1923, and 1924 pictures on this wepage were sent by Pat Adams ('56) Shays, who was forwarded the pictures from her brother, Ken Adams ('63).  Their father is on the front row of each picture ... Spike Adams!!!

In researching the original source, I found that Marian Chambless Sherman ('63) had submitted the pictures with the following text!

"I have a couple of pictures of football teams with familiar names and faces. One is dated 1923, and I think the other would be 1924. My father in law, Mercer Sherman, wrote names on the back, but some were hard to read. The first has the date of 1923 on it. This is the roster as well as I can tell":

Rear Row: Paul Pate, ______Hill, Peter Nix.
Middle Row: Wilson Joiner, Bud Johnson, George Royal, Joe Freeman
Front Row: Turner Ball, ______Hill, Spike Adams, Tom Robinson, Fatty Bozeman, Mercer Sherman, Bill Davis
