Patch user , a former employee of Marine World, had many memories to share about the animals and his experiences.
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: HMB Police, April 6, 1963. Who are these Half Moon Bay officers? Where are they? What might they be investigating?
The back of the second photo reads: William T. Fairey, July 12, 1956. Who is he? Why is he holding a mug shot?
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.
