If you think you know the answer or have a special memory related to the photo, respond in the "Leave a comment" box below this article. We'll run the answer next Monday, along with a new historical photo. The image has been provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.

We should have saved the photo of the Hurricane of '55 for this week's question, but who knew?
Last week we asked "What is Happening in This Photo?" and that was also a timely image.
John Maloney and Dianne Rechel, our two commenters, both got it right. The people in the photo were voting. "Looks like they are getting ready to enter the voting booth. How I miss those days! The curtains were so decorative...," commented Rechel.
The official answer from the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is: "West Hartford residents are seen signing in to cast their vote in an election. Notice the old style voting booths."
