Donna Haynes and Gene Ray Bunnell

Donna Haynes (right), the proprietor of the Tall Shop at 115 East High Street, with her associate, Gene Ray Bunnell in July 1949.  The Lexington specialty shop sold long dresses for tall girls.  Haynes said in regards to the clothing and her own tall stature, “the current doctrine is not to try to disguise a tall girl’s height, but to take advantage of it."
