Little Country Church

This picture represents the church of my mother's memories, a small wood framed church amongst trees. All are dressed in their Sunday best, suits and ties for the men and a hat for almost every woman. I wonder how they were all seated comfortably in what appears to be a hot summer day in a no air condition building.

The Church is unknown, located somewhere in rural Lincoln County, Mississippi.

  1. What a great photo! I remember that my grandma said that a woman always goes to Church with stockings on and her head covered, no matter how hot it is.

  2. Teicha,

    The women in my family and in the church taught me the same thing. I guess I am a fallen woman.

  3. What a lovely photo! I know you must be so proud to have found this.
