Thanks to Patch user for giving us
Thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts!
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.
Mitch Postel, president of the historical association, bought the photos from a collector for $2,500.
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 back of this week's first photo reads: B. Ponsetta, Jos. Venducci, Congressman Younger, Vincent Murphy, Henry Doelger, James J. Ward, breaking ground, October 13, 1956. Do you know where this photo was taken?
The back of the other photo reads: right- Vincent De Dominco of Hillsborough breaking ground, September, 21, 1965. Who are the other people pictured in the photo? Where are they located?
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 email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
