Hin: This is in District 1Remember when?

In honor of Local 3's 75th anniversary this year, many hours have been spent in the union's archive room digging up some long-ago photos that have been stored away for decades.

While some came with loads of information, others we know nothing about. Do you? Click on the following images to enlarge them, and see if you can figure out when and/or where they were taken and what our members were doing at the time.
