2014-05-11 - Bellview Community, Metcalfe County, KY - Photo from . Bellview Community, Metcalfe Co., KY
And now, an encore/encore voyage: A photo which went around the world, in World War II is going out again. Housewife and mother, Addie Turner Leftwich was caught here by the photographer while proudly showing off the new green beans growing in her early spring garden. Although she never traveled far from her home near Edmonton, Kentucky during in her lifetime, this photo of her covered much of the world and back in her place. Made during the days of World War II, the photo was mailed to each of her four sons, Robert, Russell, Ray and Rondyl, then serving in such places as California, Philippine Islands, German occupied France and the China Burma India Theatre of War. The same photo is now beginning it's third journey, this time via Columbia Magazine on it's way around the world again. Addie Turner Leftwich was the daughter of Joseph Alexander Turner of Adair County, who wrote to various county newspapers in 1898 under the pen name of Paul Revere. -Geniece Leftwich Marcum.
