We believe this photo was taken to Goodwill by the family of Dora Norgren who passed away. Names on the back from what we can tell with the handwriting are: Back Row: Mary (Evans) Martaindale Elwin Norgren Dora Norgren Reba Lighthall Glenn Hammer Jess Edwards Johnathan (?) Ash G. Florence Rev. & Reba, W. E. Larson's pastors. This photo was posted to the Radio Museum Facebook page in May 2015 by Lisa Autry Hankal who found it in a frame at a local Goodwill store. If you know anything about this photograph please contact us. We are guessing that it was taken in KTRB's studio A sometime in the late 40's or 50's.
