Familiar face found in photo collection

photofinder

It’s a small world. Audlane Pedley stopped by the Squire office to put in a notice for her 50th wedding anniversary. As she looked around the office, she admired the photo display and camera collection we have in honor of Rockford’s own Clarence Blakeslee. Clarence’s pictures and many of the cameras he used over the years are on our walls and shelves. They include photos of politicians, artists, actresses and musicians. As Audlane looked at one of President Gerald Ford in the Community Cabin, she saw a familiar face. “That’s my dad, Audley Whital,” she said. Her father was standing next to President Ford, also pictured with Wes Hessler, and was taken during a Rockford Rotary Club meeting. We are thinking the photo was taken in the 1960s. For a peek at our past, to see some fine vintage cameras and to see if someone you know is on our walls, visit the Squire office at 331 Northland Drive.
