Baptising in Olde Towne Creek

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.

This picture is in Joe book published book "Back Home". Here is the poem in the book. I PLEDGE To loaf along Life’s highways To feel its shifting sands Climbs its hills, view its valleys And see its verdant Lands. To feast on bountiful harvests That grow along its way To watch the glowing sunsets That end its shining days. To greet each missing joyously To sing the livelong day, To laugh with happy Comrades, To while his life away. hbss
