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."

This is a picture of Beach Park School on Steel Rd K-6 with one classroom per grade. The Auditorium doubled as the Gym. Since the school did not have a cafeteria , we walked home for lunch. Even so, it was a very memorable point of my life.
