Mary Helvey and JTW (Trubie) Mitchell with friends in 1930. This was several years before they got married. The photograph may have been taken at Emory College in Emory, Virginia, but that is not confirmed.
The license plate says Virginia 1930, and Harris Motor Co., Pulaski, Va., is on the wheel cover. I have not yet been able to find any more information on that business.
Photograph by J.T.W. Mitchell of Mary Helvey Mitchell, son John Mitchell, daughter Joan Mitchell (now Keith) and their dog Doc (son Henry Mitchell and other pets had not yet been added to the family). Early 1940s, taken at Chestnut Level, Pittsylvania County, Virginia.
This photograph was taken by my Grandfather, James Trubie Wain Mitchell, in the early 1940s, probably in Pittsylvania County. People in the picture are unidentified. They were working on the tobacco harvest.
