Mystery Photo: Scarecrow with Pumpkins

Reposted from Once Upon a Time in Needham for your Halloween pleasure.

While we still lived in Norwood, I was privileged to serve in a volunteer capacity in the archives at the Congregational Church of Needham. The archives are full of photos like this one. Charming, evocative, and completely mysterious.

  • Who are these people?
  • What were they doing? Decorating for a Harvest Festival? Performing a play?
  • What year was this taken?
