Today’s Top 5

Frankly, My Dear

Wow, fifth person from the left, it's Rhett Butler!

The Chapel

The building in the background is the Tuskegee Chapel designed by Robert R. Taylor, the first African American graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Constructed with student labor in the late 1890s, it was the first building with interior electrical lights in Macon County. Destroyed by fire on January 23, 1957.

Dapper Dan

One man who stands out in a crowd is the very self-confident and stylin' Clark Gable look-alike (fifth from the left) with the rakish hat and cool demeanor. He looks like a born leader.
