Standing on a Wooden Snuff Crate

While working at the historical society's Gaither Spradling Library and cataloging old photographs donated to the society, I came across the above image. I instantly took a liking to the photograph, especially the item used as a pedestal for the young girl - a W.E. Garrett and Sons Scotch Snuff wooden crate. Written on the back of the image is "Eveline and Holston Grissom."
