Granville Village School Photo, 1943


This photo is interesting because there is one more name listed as being in the picture, than there are people in the picture. Robert Peebles and Dick Duris are listed as being in the front row to the left of Mrs. Phelon. This photo was shared to the Granville-Tolland group page on Facebook, 24 Nov 2020, and Karen Peebles confirmed that the person is Robert Peebles. His twin brother Ray is also in the photo. Perhaps Dick Duris was a member of this class but was unable to be there for the photo.

Joyce Jones, front row center, celebrated her 90th birthday in 2020. Due to the pandemic the occasion was marked by a drive-by celebration past the old family home on Granby Road.

Photographer and date taken unknown.
