Classic Concord Photo – Mon, 11 May 2015

We thought this photo was from the days when child laborers were sent to airports with printed signs to pick up arriving dignitaries, but it turns out that was never a thing that happened. This photo is actually from June 21, 1938, during Concord’s Sesquicentennial celebration of New Hampshire and the Federal Constitution. That’s Gov. Francis Murphy at the right planting a tree at the Walker school as part of the opening ceremony, and that’s a very rigid officer of the law directly in the tree’s shadow. Thanks to reader Earl Burroughs for the pic.
