BCT groundbreaking, 1975: Were you there?

My esteemed and talented co-worker Meegan Reid found this photo in the archives here at The Flamethrower. It shows a bulldozer breaking ground for construction of the current Bremerton Community Theatre building on Lebo Boulevard.

We posted a little while ago to ask if anybody recognized the folks in the picture. We should’ve just called Bob Montgomery.

Bob knows a little bit about BCT — he’s the official historian for the venerable venue, and a board member emeritus. He related that the lady at left is Eddy (supposedly “Eddie” back in the day) Hammond, BCT’s founder and first president. The name of the man at the control of the dozer — a volunteer — is unknown, however.
