Lane Students at The Paramount

1945 Lane students at ticket boothThis photo comes to us from Sandy DeKay of the Paramount Theater and shows some local high school students (circa 1945) in front of the box office at the Main Street entrance to the Paramount.

To satisfy my own curiosity I took this photo a recent reunion of Lane High School graduates. Within minutes several people recognized old friends and before I left I had these names: (from left to right) Betty K. Wilson, Dwight Adams, Shirley McGavock, Speed Lindsey.

I don’t know any more about them, but today they would all be in there 80s. Please feel free to contact me if you knew any of them or have stories to share.

Thanks to Sandy DeKay for the photo and to the Lane alumni (especially Dr. Wallenborn) for the help identifying the students.
