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.

[Baptising in Olde Towne Creek (1)]

Description: Narrative by Junebug Clark: Baptising in Olde Town Creek. Red Hill, Tennessee. 1938. One of the first photos made by Joe 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 Reverend Hugh Vancel, officiating in this photo, was still performing baptisms in 1995, but the ceremony moved indoors. Olde Towne Creek empties into Keg Branch, a creek about three miles to the left in this picture. To the right, about a mile, is the Clark/Sharp Family Cemetery where Joe was laid to rest, high on a hill, in December 1989. In 1981 the Smithsonian Institute acquired a print of this photo for use in the exhibit, “Rights of Passage.” It also appears on Dolly Parton’s autobiography and as a poster for the Wolf Trap Music Festival.
