Comments: Although this is not an official North High photo, probably most of them went there. It is believed that this was some kind of a young men's Christian outdoor group. The photo was taken circa 1927 at the old Highland Park Theater when it was at Euclid Avenue near Sixth Avenue. The man at lower left (Number 21) is the Reverend Max DeWeese of Highland Park Christian Church (before Reverend William Knight). Number 29 is John Veenschoten who owned the theater. Hartley McHaffie (Number 32) owned McHaffie Drug Store at Sixth and Clinton. Roger Raines, North, 1950 identifies his father as Number 26, Paul Raines, and his uncle, George Raines (Number 19).
