Do you enjoy solving mysteries? If so, we could use your help! The Waltham Room has a new display of photographs called “Orphans.” These are five photos we can’t quite identify, either who’s in them or where they were taken. They include formal shots of a young man, a minister, an elderly man, a group photo and a trolley car making its run. If you’d like to try to see if your “memory serves,” stop by the Waltham Room soon. The display is right outside in the wall cabinet, facing the Library’s front doors.
We have three of the five images posted online. Click the images below for a larger view.
