New Year’s Eve 1971

Remembrances of the past year 2021 are something I would rather avoid, so I turned the clock back to 1971 to take a look. If you are like me, the math that tells you that was 50 years ago seems suspect, but I am assured it is correct. The fall news was full of the election to City Council which ended up in a recount. (Hmmmm….. so far, my avoidance technique isn’t working….) I learned that the city’s mayor (a ceremonial position at the time) was selected from among those who won the City Council election. For the 1971 election, this was Robert French. Anyhow, also in the news was the controversy over the “long hairs” and their worthiness as high school athletes! It was well worth a little trip down memory lane. Here are some examples from the Dec 31 1971 Gloucester Daily Times. Maybe you need an escape too.
