Elderly Lady


Photographs of 99 year-old Margie Wall of High Point, for a website redesign. She was being interviewed while these were being shot, and her life story was fascinating. Born at the base of Caraway Mountain in Randolph County, North Carolina, she developed polio as an infant. Her family moved to High Point when she was three because, “I got better”. Never married, she “never met anyone I fell in love with”. Though physically slow in body, her mind and sprit are clear and sharp, and she loves to entertain those around her by singing hymns.
