    The gentleman leaning up against the wall is definitely not W.P. Bryan
    I am his grandson and spent many weekends with him in Irwinville.
    W.P. Bryan III

    • Thanks for the correction! I think it was in the notes from the photographer but not the photographer’s title, but they often jotted things down in such a hurry that errors are common. I’ll change the description. I’d love to know more about your grandfather, especially if you have any photos or reminisces from him.

        I have a great photo of the 1936 Irwinville baseball team taken in front of the school . Please tell me how to send the photo as an attachment. I can furnish many of the names with the photo

      • Send to wbrianbrownATgmailDOTcom. I’ve always wished I knew more about your grandfather…those were interesting times. Thanks.

      • Only one I know in the photo is Chester Foster….would love to know more of the names.

    Was this the post office? If so, this was my family’s store-Godwins.
