Last week someone dropped by the Central Resource Library with five photographs he/she wanted to donate. Unfortunately none of our local history librarians were in the building so they were left for a librarian on his desk. As a result we do not know who this kind person is, nor do we know exactly what is depicted in the photographs.
That being said, these are some cool pictures. Four of the five are set at a very large swimming pool and show groups of children from elementary to high school ages.
And this one is my absolute favorite of the group. The way this girl is demonstrating a diving stance makes me wonder if this was a swim or dive team member with her coach.
And here is the odd one out. These girls have shirts that read “Stomp Squad ’69” which at least allows us to date the photo to 1969. Sounds like it may have been a cheerleading team.
What do you think? Anyone have a guess as to what these photos are?
And if the kind person who dropped these off comes across this post, send me a message!
