The San Mateo County Historical Association still has many photos that need captions, after it recently purchased more than 30,000 San Mateo Times newspaper photos that span most of the 20th century and provide a glimpse into San Mateo County life and its generations.
Own a little piece of history by looking at these photos and help the association find out about the story behind each one, so the group can archive them.
Peninsula Patch sites will publish various photos as we get them - usually on Thursday or Saturday mornings - so you can help us identify them.
The first photo this week reads: James Marcella, shooting victim, Jan. 16, 1961. Any idea who this man is?
The second photo is of a truck stuck in San Mateo. Do you know where this happened or the story behind it?
Please note in the comments if you have information about the photos attached.
Then call or e-mail archivist, Carol Peterson, if you want more information. Carol can be reached by phone, (650) 299-0104, or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
