Suffield travelers turn their backs on the view of Lake Garda and the looming Dolomite Mountains in northern Italy for their portrait with The Suffield Observer. Standing atop the tower of the ancient Scaliger Castle in Malcesine are, from the left: Christian, Gina, and Joe Dion and Kristi and Quinn Bathgate.
During a five-day civil rights tour through Alabama and Georgia, four local supporters are pictured with the Observer at the Selma “welcome” sign near the Edmund Pettus Bridge. From the left: Hélène and Richard Segool and Beth and Mel Chafetz. At the Pettus Bridge, Martin Luther King, Jr. and 600 civil rights workers headed east toward Montgomery, where State and local lawmen attacked them with billy clubs and tear gas, driving them back into Selma. The day is now called “Bloody Sunday.”
Enjoying their 20th annual consecutive trip to Aruba, Peg and Robert Parks lend their faces and the Observer to complete this scene of domestic harmony outside the Paddock, a funky restaurant in downtown Oranjestad.
Carol and Tom Kaput check the Observer for a return to mundane reality after visiting an ancient necropolis in Columbia. The UNESCO site, Parque Arqueologica de San Augustin, contains the largest collection of religious monuments and megalith sculpture in Latin America and is the world’s largest necropolis. No one knows what culture carved the 300 statues of animals and deities, but they are believed to date from 50 to 400 AD.
