The Kalamazoo Valley Family
Vol. 2, No. 1 September 1972
Or maybe a little stoll down memory lane?
These six young ladies were members of a High School Girls Club. Their luxurious automobile was also a member. Since it was a girls club, her name was Henrietta, and sported witty sayings like: "Don't laugh lady, your daughter may be inside". One crisp new dollar to the first person to give us the name of the Club? Sure, it isn't much, but we aren't rich either. Besides we know the answer, but does anyone else?

A few clues: One of these girls died in 1970 - five are now grandmothers - One is a great grandmother, and the great granddaughter looks exactly like her "ancestor" in the picture, even the blue jeans.
The bottom picture is what the girls were looking at on the other side of the street. One more dollar for the name of the young (19) man ogling the girls from the engine cab window.
A few clues: He was working "the extra board" (part time) as a student fireman on the day when the picture was taken. The train was a combination (freight-passenger) local which operated on a railroad nicknamed "the Punkin Vine", apparently because it wasn't going anywhere in particular, and in no great hurry to get there.
