Photos have surfaced of Jerry Garcia on his Prom Night. Come run and see. 
 
  One never knows what is in your mom's attic, but you should be aware of what is in your smart phone. Eight photos from around 1959 surfaced on the internet that depict Jerry Garcia in high school. They include Prom night and what is likely the earliest photo of the icon holding a guitar. Where did these pictures come from? They were on John Simpson's phone. He shared them with a Facebook group called I love the Grateful Dead. He just put them in a post and titled it "Jerry Garcia's Prom Pics". It seems a friends father was close to Jerry since childhood and they were his personals photos. 
They were washed out before Eric Schwartz from the radio show "Lone Star Dead" cleaned up the originals to great ends. The show airs on KNON every Friday. 
Enjoy! They are breathtaking.
