Who ARE these people?

 

 

 

The Alabama Department of Archives and History is teaming up with WSFA in an effort to learn more about photos from the Archives’ collections. Each month, a new group of photographs will be shown on WSFA’s Alabama Live and posted on the Archives website in the hopes that the public will recognize familiar faces or know something about the event or location captured in the pictures.

 

The photos are from the collections of three Montgomery-based photographers active in the mid-twentieth century, Horace Perry, John E. Scott, and Jim Peppler. Perry and Scott were based in Montgomery, in business together from about 1947 to 1952. They each continued working independently after that, Perry until about 1959 and Scott until the late 1980s.

 

Peppler was a staff photographer for The Southern Courier, a newspaper serving the local African American community from 1965 to 1968. After leaving the Courier he continued his career at Newsday in New York.

 

In addition to identifying individuals, the Archives is interested in any other details about the images, including corrections to the descriptions.

 

If you have information about these photographs contact Meredith McDonough, meredith.mcdonough@archives.alabama.gov, or call 334-353-5442.
