Once upon a time, kids rode bikes all over town. They rode them to the beach, the library, downtown — you name it.
And you did name it. Those were some of the guesses for last week’s 2-part Photo Challenge.
All were wrong.
The top image (click here to see) was taken at Staples High School. I thought that was a slam-dunk — if not for the rack itself, then the parking lot behind it. But I guess except for the one kid who rode his back to school, no one ever notices it at the bottom of the upper lot, behind the cafeteria.
The second photo was a lot tougher. The only reason I know where that rack is, is because a few days before Christmas I had to park waaaaay behind Barnes & Noble, and walk around to the front. The bike rack — which I’d never noticed before — is at the far of the entrance.
Riding your bike to Staples may be a novel idea these days. Riding to Barnes & Noble is a death wish.
It took several hours for the first correct response. Brandon Malin — a Staples sophomore — nailed the high school photo. It was his friend’s bike, he said.
So now it’s on to our first-ever 4-pack Photo Challenge.
Longtime Westporter Bobbi Liepolt’s father — photographer Bill Bell — shot the Dunbar furniture ad campaign throughout the 1950s and ’60s. He frequently used Westport settings.
