Freeland area Bible study retreat held in Montrose, Pa in July 1946
From Bob Zimmerman, a photo of a group of Freeland area people attending a religious retreat at Montrose, Pa. in July 1946. The event was led by Charles Crawford. The cost for attending was about $12/person for 6 days. Shown here are the photo, front and back, and then another copy on which Bob wrote numbers on some of the people and then a numbered list he compiles of 31 names to identify 31 people on the photo - I've cropped that copy to focus on the people so it can be enlarged somewhat. It looks as though "Wilcox 1946" is handwritten diagonally on the bottom left corner of the original photo, and the back was signed by participants. Great to have this shared. Thank you, Bob.
