Persons who have been paying attention to credits for the historical photos used in now-and-then will have seen the name Lawton Gowey a few score times. Lawton and I traded piles of images now many years ago. Lawton died in the mid 1980s. Here is a photograph of Lawton most likely on the day of the waterfront trolley’s inauguration, May 29, 1982. I recognize the friend on the left but do not know his name. Lawton has his 35mm camera handing from his neck and it typically smiing. I don’t know who took this photograph, but thank her or him.
