Q. I would like to know how to find pictures of the 1958-’59-’60 marching band of Brunswick County Training School at that time, that’s what the school was called. We would march in the Azalea Parade. It was the most exciting days of my life.

A. MyReporter would like to put this question out to readers. Does anyone know where such pictures might be found?

Brunswick County Training School served black children during the days of segregation. It opened in the early 1920s in Southport and for about 25 was the only high school for black students in the county. By 1951 it had been renamed Brunswick County High School, according to StarNews articles.

Enter a comment below if you know where pictures of the marching band may be found.
