People Parade Back in the 80s, 3 artists created a painting of Main St. and the people who were often seen there, including many of the shopkeepers. It is hanging in the Town Hall lobby. Years ago, I took pictures of the mural, divided them up into 9 sections and put a number near each person, hoping to be able to identify as many as possible. I couldn't get as close as I wanted to the original picture because there was a big framed poster in front of it. But if there is enough interest, I'll go back and take more pics in a higher resolution.This is the 3rd of 9 pictures. Recognize anybody?
