On Saturday, 10 November 2012, I attended the E. Baird auction in Martinsville, VA and am now in possession of a great number of pictures that were in a suitcase. Included are wedding pics, some old pics, anniversary pics, graduation photos, etc. Most have no names on them; the ones that do include:
