Written on back: Patsy Bevlie Betty Marliy Jane Jean max Mary Jo Betty , Rose (mom told me it was Max Gullett school picture, (however one girl looks like John Stangle's mother; the third from the left in front) and one of the names is Rose on the back.

My dad, Floyd "Jeep" Price, is in the back row between the tuba and drum major. He graduated in 1940. I would guess that the picture was taken his junior or senior year (1938-1940).  Lawrenceville. Submitted by Mike Price Photo by Blatz Studio, Lawrenceville, IL.
