Main Street, Old Knifley - July 1902

2014-08-29 - Knifley, KY - Photo from the collection of Don Knifley.
Knifley, Adair CO, KY - Photo Staff of photo from Donald Knifley, first posted 2006-04-20collection.
A Fourth of July, 1902, community celebration in Knifley, KY. This is a rarely seen photo of Main Street, looking east, in old Knifley, from the collection of Donald Knifley. Mr. Knifley has not identified any of people in the photo. But he does note that it is the only photo extant which shows the letters at the top of the L.R. Chelf store, upper right hand corner, clearly enough in his original that the letters can be made out with a magnifying glass. The photo kicked off the serialized story of the community and the school, by Donald Knifley, Jennifer Hardin, and students and staff of Knifley Grade Center. Several more wonderful photos will accompany the stories. (See: HISTORY OF KNIFLEY COMMUNITY AND KNIFLEY'S SCHOOLS with 15 photo(s), detailed cutlines).
