Did Your Family Have a Tradition of Visiting on Sundays?

Did your family have a tradition going visiting on Sundays? That was the case with many of my family members.

Frequent visitors to the Wilmer, Alabama, farm home of N.B. "Bonie" Pierce and Julia L. Moody included Arvis Brown. Arvis appears in the above photo with a woman identified only by her last name of Tanner.

Notice that they were photographed with a field crop behind them, but it is difficult to identify the kind of plants growing there. Also Arvis and the young woman appear to be dressed in their Sunday finery. Perhaps they dropped by the Pierce home for a visit after church. This was a common custom among young people of the time.
