Do You Know the People in These Historical Fairfield Photos?


FAIRFIELD, NJ — In its effort to identify the people in a series of photos found in the Fairfield Public Library’s local history collection, the Fairfield Historical Society has a few photos that its members have not been able to identify.

The five photos above are graduation photos that span a range from the 1920s through the 1960s, according to the library. (See below for those already identified.)

Anyone who can identify a person or people in these mystery photos or knows the year in which any were taken is urged to contact the Fairfield Library and ask to speak to Brianne at 973-227-3575.
