The Whig received one reply to last week’s photo.

That is me on the far right in this photo. I was 10 years old. This picture was taken during the Havre de Grace Fourth of July parade in July 1976. They were running a decorated bicycle contest for the Bicentennial celebration that year. We were the winners of the contest. I still have the costume my mother hand sewed for me. At the time I lived on Firetower Road in Port Deposit. I am now 52 years old married to my wife, Mandy, and reside in Hagerstown. We have one daughter named Olivia. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

(Answer: Michael was correct in his recollection of this July 2, 1976, photo, but it actually depicts the winners of the Port Deposit Bicentennial Parade, who also participated and won in the Havre de Grace parade held earlier that week. Pictured, left to right, are Wayne Tome, Michele Jack, William Keetley and Michael Barton. Judges for the event, posing behind the winners, were Chief Earl Walker of the Havre de Grace Police Department and Shirley Lewis of Port Deposit.)
