This photo, from another glass negative from the Trukenbrod collection, shows a group of schoolgirls marching south on the west side of the Square to celebrate Memorial Day on May 30, 1922. Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868 after being proclaimed by the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. In the photo that was printed last week, the brick house was determined to be at 1904 8th St. The white house on the left was replaced by the house that is now located at 1821 8th St. Other houses still recognized in this photo that was taken before 1914 are located at 1916, 1924 and 2001 8th St. (Photo supplied by Green County Historical Society)
