Another gift from Allison!  She writes…

A few more scraps of my family’s home movies, taken by my grandfather M.F. “Bubber” Adams, Jr., in and around Decatur in the 1940s and 1950s. These include WSB’s first TV transmitter, Decatur First Baptist Church, bits of Winnona Park, and probably the scooter you wish you had now.
