In 1938, the Manning citizens again made an attempt to get a swimming pool built, but along came Adolph Hitler and the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Imperialists which forced the US into WWII in 1941.
Here are just a few pictures of people and images of what was going on in Manning in 1938.

It will continue to give you an idea of how vast a database I hopefully more people with Manning pictures and history will get their things to me to scan and add to the database.
