Don't really know anybody for sure, but is that that Bruce Osburn guy on the left?

Like the stuff you post Bruce.

No, Lynn, that isn't Bruce. This photo was furnished by a fellow from up near Fayetteville who courted the girl in the middle. He hitchhiked to Hamlet some weekends to spend a little time with her. And I understand the fellow on the left courted the girl on the right for a while. All three of those shown lived in Hamlet.

With that hint, I then have a guess for the girl in the middle. Could she be Rebecca 'Becky' Smith?

This photo shows the girls better. Don't worry about the fellow with them, he's the one from Fayetteville.

Yeah, I remember that one from earlier.

Now I'll wait for someone to id the current posting. Feel like I should recognize someone in that photo though, but it does go back a ways.
