DAYS GONE BY – STORIES FROM THE PAST 
With football homecomings this weekend for both Bibb County High School and West Blocton High School, this seems like a great time to look back and share some early 20th Century photographs an Extension colleague located and shared with me. How many of you can fill in a missing name, or locate a named person who is an ancestor?  

Here are some interesting photographs from the Alabama Department of Archives and History from Bibb County, Alabama. Do you know any of the missing names?
