Baptising in Olde Towne Creek

Baptising in Olde Towne Creek

Date: 1938
Creator: Clark, Joe
Description: Narrative by Junebug Clark: Photograph is from 1938 and is shot in Red Hill, Tennessee. One of the first photos made by Joe, Baptising in Olde Towne Creek, has endured to become a favorite and meaningful to many. It bears close scrutiny because of the differing expressions and attitudes of those attending. People have said that they have counted fifty-one people in this picture and I’ve listened to many a controversy about a TV antenna* appearing in this 1938 photo. The Rev. Hugh Vancel, in charge in this photo, performed countless baptisms, but the ceremony eventually moved indoors. Olde Towne Creek empties into Keg Branch, a creek that runs though our property, about three miles left of your view point. To your right, about a mile, is the Clark family cemetery where Joe was laid to rest in December of 1989. In 1981 the Smithsonian Institute displayed a print of this photo for use in an exhibit “Rights of Passage.” It was published in the autobiography of Dolly Parton and as the poster for the Wolf Trap Music Festival.

[Country Store]

Date: October 1972
Creator: Clark, Joe
Description: Narrative by Junebug Clark: Photograph is from August 1972 and is shot near Lynchburg, Tennessee. I guess in the city you would call this stopping by the corner store or neighborhood store, but in the rural parts of Tennessee the country store still exists, though fewer now than when this photo was made.
