    James Richard “Jimmie” Ray (1910-1983) opened “Jimmie’s Studio” in a little building in the backyard of his home on Main Street in Madison Heights around 1945, becoming known as the “official photographer” of his home town. He took photographs and did photo finishing for the public as well as for other commercial photographers until his death. His photographs included special events – weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties – portraits, family activities, church and school happenings, local scenes and landscapes.
