Young Fessie

Above is an undated photograph of Fessie Manuel Pennington who was born in 1912 in the Carolina community of Itawamba County. The photograph was recently repaired by 'cousin' Rita who carefully removed the lines and tears that kept the photo from its full potential. Thank you, Rita. Now the only thing that is missing from the photograph is the intense blue of Fessie's eyes.

Mona, this is a new one on me. I can't remember ever seeing this one. It would not be the picture with him standing by a tree, and part of the p[icture was cut off, would it.
