The Tribune-Herald each Saturday is publishing a photo from the Lyman Museum’s John Howard Pierce Photography Collection. The Kona Historical Society generously donated the collection in 2007. The museum is seeking help identifying the people and places in the pictures, most of which are from the 1960s and ’70s. Those with information about the subjects in the photos can contact the museum at 935-5021 or firstname.lastname@example.org. THIS PHOTO (NO. 17423) was captured July 17, 1963.
