November 15, 2017 Classic Photo:
The Men With Canes
Last week’s Classic Photo featured a group of men with canes in front of an FS sign. Helen Engele stopped in at The Nashville News office and gave us the names for many of the people in the photo. Engele stated that the photo was of Washington County Farm Supply employees and Washington County farmers who were on a tour of an FS Research Farm in Bloomington, and that it was probably during the 1970s. She stated that the canes they have in the photos were walking sticks, many of which are likely still around. Pictured were, FIRST ROW, Wilbert Borrenpohl, Melroy Rennegarbe, Norman Engele (Helen’s husband), Wm. Shelton, Elmer Brune, unknown. SECOND ROW, Unknown, unknown, unknown, Lester Schorfheide, Stanley Schuessler, Norvin Bultman and Norman Karg.
