June 2, 1931- Mock commencement ceremony at the Book Nook

Mock commencement ceremony at the "Book Nook" on indiana Ave
where Buffa-Louies and Starbucks stand today . 
Note the dead fish on the podium and the chicken hats and bath robs that some of the spectators are wearing.
On the stage, dressed in white with his back to us, Herman B. Wales. 
Another photo from my first full colorized exhibition "Living in Color" at the 
"Monroe County Historical society" museum.

This is the original black and white photo I worked off of.
