Kensington Boy Scout Troop 140 (1951-1968)

Ok, thanks to Will Roll we have more pictures of Kensington history
dating back to 1951. This was a boy scout troop that used to be
on Beverly Road somewhere near East 8th street. I think the small
church is actually still there where they were based.

Will, feel free to describe in the comments section anything you
would like to about these photo's.

Thanks again and I'll post the rest soon!
