Asa & Ethel Johnson, Blackstone College, 1919

Asa & Ethel Johnson, Blackstone College, 1919 Virginia: This large group photo shows a number of the participants at the first Virginia Conference School [for training Sunday school teachers.]This was run by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South at the (Methodist) Blackstone College. My great-grandparents, Asa and Ethel Chesterman Johnson and three of their four sons (all of Richmond, Virginia) are pictured.
The photo has amazing detail but a strange, dark tone ... my grandfather and his brothers had light brown hair but in this photo, their hair looks black. This particular building burned down in the 1920's. Interesting details are the Edison-style bare bulb hanging in the center of the entranceway and the fire-escape ladder on the roof at the right.
