From The Archives Friday: Whaling Days 1975July 25th, 2014 by Meegan Reid
I was looking for something timely to post this week and figured finding the first negatives of Whaling Days would be perfect.
While my “research” (you see research sounds so much more professional than googling, but let’s face it, I just googled all of this) turned up that Whaling Days started in 1972, further research (ahem more googling) turns up that 1975 was the first annual festival as we know it today. If I am incorrect in this, blame google.
I can tell you that 1975 was the earliest box of negatives that I could find any sleeves labeled “Whaling Days”, so google could be correct.
