Photographs from Richardson Primary, 1973-74

When we moved to Mississippi from Evanston, Illinois, I began attending Richardson Primary School. I was in the second grade. My mother took these pictures one day during dismissal.

Francene is facing the camera. You can see something white in her hair — either a ribbon or balls. Kimberly Simmons is in the back right. You can only see her hair.

Can you believe the trousers I have on? I was about to claim this was my sister until I got a look at the coat. She wouldn’t have been caught dead with that many flowers on an article of clothing.
