Momen & Marvin Patterson & Friends

Momen Patterson, Marvin Patterson, Aubry Gwinn, Lawrence Lewis (Deacon), & Hensley Harrah.

Thanks to Harold Patterson, Marvin's son, for identifying everyone in this shot.  Harold tells me that this is the only photograph to hang in the Meadow Bridge Barber Shop.  I'm guessing this was taken sometime in the 1980s.  This location is just down the road from my grandfather's house, near what was Garten's Store, the building behind the men.
