We’ve learned some new information about this previously published photo of the Gainesville High School Glee Club, which is mentioned in a 1928 item shared in this week’s Times Past. We now know that the photo was taken to advertise the club’s upcoming performance of “Love Pirates of Hawaii.” The group posed beside Gainesville’s fourth school building, which was built in 1917 on the site near today’s Gainesville post office and was later demolish after being declared unsafe. Only three glee club members’ identities are known: Hattie Clark (Sandford) is on the far right, and her brother, Wolf Clark, is standing near the center of the group in the dark sweater. The student labeled “Virgil” is Virgil Robinson, father of Carla Robinson Lane and her brother, the late Russ Robinson. The photo was recently shared with us by Matt Lyons of Springfield, grandson of Hattie Clark Sandford.
