Do you recognize these young boys?

Lee Donehower, of Oakland, CA, sent this photo he took in Wilmington more than four decades ago, wanting to know if anyone could identify the young boys in the picture.  According to Donehower, “In 1970-71, I was stationed at Westover AFB in Chicopee, MA, and spent my weekends driving around the New England countryside. During the summer of 1971 I happened to drive through Wilmington and stopped to take this photo in front of the town’s IGA grocery store. To this day it has been one of my favorite photos and I’ve often wondered whatever happened to the boys pictured,  who’d now be in their late 50s or early 60s.” Donehower added that he contacted the town of Wilmington and the historical society to no avail. Anyone who might know who is in the photo should call Randy Capitani at (802) 464-3388 or email
