I’m not sure what the story is behind this photo which according to the Sonoma County Library catalog was taken in 1959 at the Sonoma Marin Fair in Petaluma. The four nuns are unidentified, but the man in the middle is Earl Dolcini.
Chances are this image is not included in the exhibit currently on display at the California State Archives in Sacramento, but it got your attention – right?!
