Brady-Hughes-Beasley Archives donates historical photograph
The Brady-Hughes-Beasley Archives at Magness Library has donated a framed, fully restored, archival photograph of The Medical Clinic when it was only one story. The photograph will be hung in the recently restored building. Pictured, from left, are Brad Walker, Pat Bigbee, Carol Caldwell, Rachel Killebrew, Mary Mason, Pastor Harry Green, Fran Dunlap, and Ray Goode.
Remember when The Medical Clinic on Main Street was only one story?Most people would not, because the building was constructed in late 1938 and the second story was added seven months after completion which makes the window of time brief.Individuals sorting through the Archive discovered a negative within the Brady-Hughes-Beasley Archives of the building within that timeframe. According to Magness Library director Brad Walker, the print was made from the restored original Hughes Studio negative and framed. “The Archives wanted to honor the recent restoration of this historic building by sharing this unique photograph from the past with them,” said Walker.
