Brenda Trent remembers, “While checking out pictures of Things Disappearing from Baltimore which is presently being featured on Baltimoresun.com, I came across this picture of Willie the Whale. The woman in the picture with the whlte sweater is my mother, Betty Griffith, who has been deceased for 35 years. The little boy inside Willie the Whale on the right hand side with the sweater on is my brother, Gary Duane Griffith, who is now 52 years old. The rest of the children are his classmates who attended the Maryland School for the Blind. They are on a field trip and being chaperoned by my mother. The school year would be 1968-1969.
RUNNER UP: Sharon Alfinito DeVault, Pasadena, MD
Sharon DeVault remembers, “This was summer 1975. The picture features her mother, Sharon and her three siblings and her grandmother. . . My grandparents accompanied us on many vacations and day trips like Enchanted Forest. We would bring our picnic lunch of fired chicken (homemade of course!!) and eat at the picnic tables. Enchanted Forest remains one of our childhood memories that we still talk about to this day.”
Thanks to Betty King Pearson, Diana Schuyler Conti, Susan Brown Bales and Linda Van Wagoner Wilkins for sending Willie the Whale photos as well.
