Biographies

Reprinted below is a copy of the 8’ x 2’ photograph which hangs in the Local History Room at Peninsula Center Library.  Curiosity about the people portrayed here, and the part they played in Peninsula history, provided the motivation which became the 40 Families History Project.   There are 187 people in the picture, three of whom are Caucasian. The Library is interested in hearing from anyone who can identify the faces currently without numbers, as well as those who know more about the families already named.
