Laura Sergeant graciously offered the Foundation use of photographs of downtown Linden that she took in June of 2016. Her comments about the images follow.
“I chose to use black and white images because they highlighted the simple geometry of the structures. The Texas sky presents each structure at its powerful best. The buildings on the square, as well as the water tower, stand guard as the Cass County Courthouse reigns elegantly, awaiting its guests.”

Thanks for the pictures and a trip down “Memory Lane.” The b & w pictures was a great idea.
I worked at Davis Drug when I was
17 during the Christmas season assisting customers. I worked at Allen Brothers the next Christmas season wrapping presents.

My pleasure, Beverly. Linden is so fortunate to have so many historic structures maintained so lovingly.
Excellent work Laura. The b & w captured the images of Linden perfectly. Reminds me of Larry McMurtry’s “The Last Picture Show”. The book and black/white movie captured the coming of age of the teens who grew up that community’s “golden era”. Thanks for taking me back in time. Joe B. Lovelace
I am so glad you like them, thank you for the compliment!
Hi, Laura, Excellent photography!! I tend to think of my old times in Linden in black and white. You created a storybook of my memories. Thanks, James Partain
