I was very excited to find the pictures. There were other people in the photos, and they were well documented. I can't remember any of the other names, but Gladys kept turning up so I think they were probably hers. There was one very nice picture of Gladys and a nice-looking gentleman, which apparently was taken on a trip to Chicago. There was mention on the back of someone (not in the picture) who had gotten shot while gambling.
I'll go back to Knightstown this weekend and purchase all the pictures that look to be in that lot. They were scattered among others but since they were well documented I should be able to pick them out. There are about 7, I think, at the most, and I think they were $4 a piece. I'm so fascinated by them that even if they turn out not to be of interest to you, I'll keep them myself. The notes were so excellent, though, I think they should find a home with their family.
