These two images came out of the same file folder, entitled “George R. Brown School Dedication.” Both are odd and I’m struggling to see how they might relate to each other.
First, this looks like Mr. Brown is leading a game of musical chairs or possibly someone has lost a contact lens:
And second, I don’t even have a good guess:
I thought at first it might be a protest (which were still current in those days), then I saw the trombone. So it’s the band, in street clothes, a guy in uniform with a bullhorn and the fellow in the plaid sport coat. They don’t look to be anywhere near engineering.
I don’t have a theory and am open to the idea that this second one was misfiled years ago.
Bonus: I caught one of those herons in flight over by Brown today.
