This photo is from the Bridgeport Fireman's Fair from 1952 and shows a pair of princesses being escorted in a convertible. Janet Harris and Glenda McDonald are shown here.
Legendary boxer Billy Conn, third from the left, is shown with locals in Clarksburg at the Carmichael Auditorium in this photo that is believed to be from the 1930s. Several other individuals have their names written on this photo. Do you know any of them?
