Latter-day Saint Images, 1929 (3)

By: Ardis E. Parshall - July 04, 2012

More than 80 years has passed since these Latter-day Saints posed for the cameras … I wonder what they would have thought had they somehow been able to see us today?

  1. They would likely be surprised to find that their pictures are being viewed from my phone

  2. Heh! That’s a sure thing!

  3. I doubt I could top Edgar Lee Masters:

    “Degenerate sons and daughters,
    Life is too strong for you–
    It takes life to love Life.”

    Okay, I’m in a sour mood. Even for me.

  4. There apears to be something odd in the perspective of the Dimond Ward San Francisco Stake
    Sunday School. It is almost like the first few rows are standing higher than the back rows. Maybe on a terrace or reverse steps hidden by the crowd.

  6. Mex, in 1929, Sanpete was still a long way from Salt Lake.

  7. Heck, in 2012, Sanpete is still a long way from Salt Lake

  8. Now that my flippant snarkiness is out of my system…

    It seems half the missionaries in W. Va. are sisters. I didn’t realize there were so many so early in our history. (Or maybe they all went stateside, as there are none in the Welsh, German, or Swedish photos.) There is however, a Widsoe in the Welsh photo and a gentleman that looks suspiciously like Elder Callis in the front row of the Virginia photo 4th from right.

  9. Clark, since the missionary pictures would probably have been taken at conferences, as the only times large groups of elders would have been together, it seems likely that the mission president and even other authorities might have been there, too. Maybe we should have a contest to Spot The Leader in group pictures — you would surely be one of the winners!

  10. That surely is Elder Callis and on his right is Elder Stephen Richards of the Twelve in the Virgina picture. In the Wales picture that is Elder Widtsoe of the Twelve
