Bob Ford slides from the 1960's - 1970's - Book #1            


    In the 1960's and 1970's, Bob Ford of Alma, IL snapped thousands of photos

    around Marion county.  Many of these slides included townspeople around 

    Alma and Kinmundy on any given day.  Enjoy your walk down Main Street!


                         (Note: Since there are so many images, these have been divided up into several books for the website. 

             Remember that you can also use CTRL-F to find a particular surname within these pictures when you are on the page.)
