Three Fishers

Gladys, Jackie, and Jimmy









I dreamed I saw three Fishers
Standing in a row
Each one wore a uniform
And the time was long ago

I dreamed I saw three Fishers
From a time that's long gone by
And a town that's long since vanished
Seen only by memory's eye

I dreamed I saw three Fishers
Looking like they should
Smiling, happy, strong, and straight
And they knew that life was good

Now don't tell me I can't go back
To that time that makes me smile
I dreamed I saw three Fishers
So let an old guy dream awhile

Parade 1955

I don't know who the girl is with her back turned, but she's looking at Wayne. That might be Leslie Owens just over LaDane McSwain's shoulder, under the star. Nancy Ann Dillard is seated in the black Dress. Ann Bounds is seated to her right. Standing are Madelyn Prather (left) and Aletha Carr (right). I'm not sure of the exact date, but I think 1955 is about right.

The location is the corner of Commerce and McKinney. You can see Perry Brothers clearly. The Tidwell Drug sign is just over Aletha's shoulder. Then there's the Tom Thumb grocery. Yowell's Drug is next to it, and you can see the Palace Theater at the far right. It had been closed for years by the time of the photo, I think.
