An additional page has been added here to provide more pictures and shorten the download time.  Thanks to Mitzi Brummel Moran, a native Union Citian who has not lived here for many years.  Mitzi is a former reporter for the Union City Messenger and she had retained some of these photos among her memories of those good times.  Other photos were provided by Spud Hale, pitcher on the 1955 Dodgers and current resident of Jackson, TN.  Thanks to both of these fine folks for sharing.
