  1. As usual, these are all great, Ardis. (I wonder what it means that I enjoy these so much …)

  2. I don’t know, Gary, but I’m beginning to depend on your expressing your enjoyment. Thank you.

  3. Another great set of pictures. Thanks, Ardis! And wouldn’t it be nice if the pictures the church is gathering now had names attached to all the faces!

  4. Love all the Primary shots. I still have a class photo from either a Sunday School or Primary class from when I was a child — probably age 9 or 10. We looked quite a bit like these kids do (wondering, no doubt, how much longer the picture would take!).

  5. I saw the call sign on that television camera, and couldn’t resist Googling it. And found a fascinating site with history and photographs of station KDYL in Salt Lake City. Interesting stuff!

  8. “Primary’s Junior Council TV Show”

    Whaaaaa??!?? If only there were some website that could explain this long-lost TV show I’d never heard of before.

    Let’s see, I’ll just Google and…

    Oh:

  9. MC gets all the brownie points today!

  10. In the England Picture we see Elder Alma Sonne who took over after Elder Ezra Taft Benson’s WW2 cleanup effort. Also seated on his right may be President Selvoy J. Boyer who was the Mission President. Also in that mission at that time was a young Elder M. Russell Ballard but I don’t think I see him in that group of people.

  11. Cameron, I’m plum out of brownie points, having rashly awarded them all to MC for recalling that old Keepa post. I’ll have to learn to keep a few points in reserve for you and your uncanny ability to Spot-the-General-Authority!

  12. I’m not looking for any of your “rashly awarded” brownie points, but I want you to know that I really, really enjoy these photos when you post them.

  13. I always enjoy these pictures. This batch is so recent, that it is interesting to think of the little old ladies at church being the young women in the photographs.

  14. I always love the Primary Children’s Hospital pictures. Makes me think of my loving pennies.
