204. June 1949

I recently purchased this photo.  Apologies for the inferior quality.  As they say, though, it is what it is.
 
I hope everyone has an enjoyable 4th of July!

199. Krishna Venta, January 1958


This group's moderator recently purchased a hard copy of this photo, which is dated January 18, 1958.  The photo, taken by Don Bennett Steffa (who apparently snapped quite a few photos of both Krishna Venta and the WKFL Fountain of the World members), is of Clyde Rowen and Krishna Venta.  Love the "Anchorage Rendezvous" necktie.

This group's moderator recently purchased a hard copy of this photo, which is stamped as being from December 8, 1958 (two days before Krishna Venta's murder) and from the Anchorage Times.
