October 25, 2017 Classic Photo:
“Things Are Looking Up”
The Classic Photo featured here on October 25 showed four men looking up in what seemed to be a posed shot of some type.
We heard from Bernice Snead who says that the photo was likely related to Tri-County Electric Cooperative somehow. She stated that one of the men was Hugh Downey, who worked for Tri-County out of Mt. Vernon, another was a Schnake, and the fourth man in the photo she recognized but didn’t remember the name of. The third man in the photo she didn’t mention.
Snead said that she was a Tri-County customer and remembered Downey, and that someone who worked for Tri-County in the 60s or 70s would likely know who they all were.
