Over the past few weeks, we’ve begun processing a large collection of photographs donated to the Historical Society by the Review Archive (http://www.reviewarchives.org/). The Review was a newspaper based in Roxborough, but it seems to have covered many events in Conshohocken and the surrounding area. One of the more curious pictures we’ve found is this one:
The back provides us little information:
“Girls” is no doubt the caption for the photo. The “4 x 4 1/2” could be the size of photo in the paper. “CO/PW” might stand for “Conshohocken/Plymouth-Whitemarsh.” But that leaves us none the wiser as to who these boys are or what they’re doing. Is it a celebration? A fund-raiser? Did they lose a bet? Do any of you remember an event like this?
We hope to bring you some more photographs from The Review in the coming months.
