If our of this are any indication, Peninsula residents know their history!
And the San Mateo County Historical Association still has many photos that need captions.
The Association 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, the San Mateo Daily Journal reports.
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 so you can help us identify them.
The first photo this week reads: “Crosby Trial, Feb. 14, 1955: Attorney
Mc Ginnis and Crosby.”
Does anyone know what this trial was about?
The back of the other photo reads: “Daniel Nehnem and Whitmore, April 12, 1955.”
Whitmore was San Mateo County Sheriff then. Does anyone know who Nehnem was and why these two are pictured together?
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.
is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
