Joseph (Joe) Bramlett was a student at Pine Mountain from 1940 through 1944, just before the School was entering its final years as a boarding school. He was particularly proud of his education at Pine Mountain and sent this photograph album of his time at the School to Pine Mountain in 2000 to share with others who will remember these closing years of the boarding high school program.

The photographs capture the context of the late 1940s and provide a visual record of the transition of the School’s programs and the celebration of many of the traditions associated with the School, particularly the Christmas festivities.

The photographs are largely the work of Arthur Dodd with additional snapshots taken by Bramlett and by other students. Also included are reproductions of common photographs that freely circulated among staff and students from the School and may date from earlier times in the institutional history.

Transcription of image #57:

The Warrior River, now greatly expanded, since it became a part of the dam and lock system in the chain south of T.V.A. It has made of Birmingham [Alabama] a port, linking it with Mobile millions of tons of freight come by steamer, through the system of locks to Birmingham.
