Little Miss Bishopville Tire Company
My name is Anne Martin Galloway and I was born in Bishopville, SC on September 23, 1952 at the Lee County Hospital. My best memories were living on Baskin Avenue until I was 6 when we moved to Sumter, SC.
This is a picture of me as Little Miss Bishopville Tire co. in (I am guessing 1954 or 1955.)
There was a parade (and Gayle Kerr might remember more details) and my sister, Mary, was already on a float. I was so jealous and started crying so Gayle felt sorry for me and added on to the "go cart" (it looks like a lawn mower) and made me "Little Miss Bishopville Tire co.".
As you can see by my layers of princess clothing, I am the sheet princess with small tires for my crown and to wave with.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other information if Gayle can't fill you in on the exact dates and which parade it was.
Thank you, Anne Martin Galloway
