HISTORY TRIVIA: Step Back in Time

The San Mateo County Historical Association staffers have thousands of photos that they need help identifying in order to caption them. Can you help them?

Thanks to Patch user john davidson for his historical timeline in the Sept. 20 edition of the Step Back in Time history quiz.

However, history buffs out there, we still 

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.

This week's first photo is labeled: Denny Lyons, Old Sheet Music, March 20, 1967. Why is the man in this photo holding old sheet music?  

The other photo is labeled: Dr. Bruce Maliver, Encounter Game, March 14. What was “Encounter Game”?

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, carol@historysmc.org
