Thanksgiving Day morning in Woburn Mass. was time for the traditional football competition between the adjacent towns of Winchester & Woburn. I remember that #54′s nickname was “Butch.” I don’t remember his last name.
The camera was my 4/5″ Speed Graphic with a Graphex shutter and a 4.7 Ektar 127mm Kodak Lens. Yes, Kodak did make some lenses during wartime. There was no chrome on this camera..all flat black. It was the wartime model.
The negative & the original print have disappeared, but I am still here and was able to scan from the first yearbook at our high school which I miraculously still have. I was the photographer…big surprise.
So Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the States. I think Woburn won the game.
