Thanks to Patch user for doing her research and finding caption information for our !
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 reads: Emmett Lynch and Thomas “Tip” O’Neil, 10/7/82. Who is Emmett Lynch and why is he with “Tip” O’Neil?
The second photo reads: Richard MacKinnon w/ picture of A-bomb blast, 4/25/89. Why is he showing a picture of an A-bomb blast in 1989?
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.
