The San Mateo County Historical Association needs your help!
Are you a history buff or trivia master? If so, you have your work cut out for you. Many of you helped us with our and gave us very accurate caption information.
In our second week of posting historical photos desperately seeking captions, it looks like our friends at the history museum are hoping to challenge us. Today's photos have little to no information to go on, so we are hoping someone out there knows something!
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.
Who is this mystery man? Does anyone know who this man wearing a headdress is or what he is doing? This photo is not dated or captioned.
The second photo is of Clyde F. Warren, identified as a bandit on Feb. 3, 1956. Does anyone know his story or whether it is related to San Mateo County?
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.
