Bouncing Back

Here is this month’s history column from the San Juan Historical Society and Museum…

Bouncing back to 1947-48 Friday Harbor Basketball

This gem of a sports photo is especially prized for its identification of each person in the Friday Harbor High School Boys Basketball team portrait from 70 years ago. Who do you recognize in this photo?

We don’t know if the team had a winning record in 1947-48, but we sure like this photo and wish the best for all our island teams this school year. If you have a Friday Harbor team photo from decades gone by and would like to share it for the archives collection of the San Juan Historical Society and Museum, won’t you please let us know?
