I’m sure this one will be no problem to identify, but can you guess the year this photo was taken? Anybody have any memories of this time?

No guesses for last week’s Throwback Thursday photo, but perhaps it’s because Ii forgot to put it up on Facebook. (Whoops.) Anywho, according to the Belfast Historical Society and Museum, it was “Opera House Indoor Block Party...19teens! Food Fairs, Healthy Baby Contest and merchants displaying their most modern wares were popular mid-winter events at the Opera House. Booths at this fair included: Waldo County Herald newspaper, Hamilton's greenhouse and florist, toasted corn flakes cereal, Tudor coffees and teas and...Jell-o!”
