Rosalynn Fillmer “Lynn” Dresher in 1950’s :: Throwback Thursday

Today is still Thursday so I just got in my Throwback Thursday post. This week it’s a photo of my Aunt who passed away back last July, Rosalynn Fillmer “Lynn” Dresher. Lynn was known far and wide in Auburn and I still can hear the words brother George Mathison read during her service from John 14:1-6.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also… Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

I was not able to totally verify the date of this particular shot of Lynn but the other photos, which look like they were taken with 5-10 years of each other, have the date February 26, 1942. Since she was born in 1934 I am guessing this shot was done around the mid-50’s. It’s quite faded but the back of the photo has the stamp from the studio that says:

when ordering additional photographs please give number appearing on this photograph. Photoreflex Studio, Loveman, Joseph & Loed. Birmingham 2, ALA

I love old photographs. The time and effort that was put into making a print was just not the same as pulling out your iPhone and snapping a shot and shooting it to Flickr.

  1. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could zoom in on her eyes and see what she is looking at in the reflection? Great post!
