This is the image of our father, Mr. Gaston Monk, the first principal of what was then known as Bruce Falkland Elementary School. Our mother, Mrs. Virginia Monk, taught at the school where my siblings (Gloria, William and Pamela) and I also attended elementary school.

The image is of the principal of the school, [Gaston Monk, Sr.?] who is standing next to a sign indicating “Welcome to Falkland-Bruce School.” The date on the negative envelop is April 22, 1958. The image is one of many that recorded the events in Pitt Co. from the 1920’s to 1960’s. David Jordan Whichard and Julian R. Whichard founded the newspaper in 1881. The Daily Reflector Negative Collection was a gift from Mr. Jordan Whichard and Mr. John Kent Cooke, Jr.
