Here are more “mystery photos,” never picked up at the Hopedale Pharmacy, long ago, after they had been developed. The name Wilkinson was on the envelope they were in. I didn’t find that name in street listing books from the time they probably come from. It seems likely that they were left by someone from a nearby town. Mary Perry was identified in last month’s pictures.
