img587This photo was taken in the 1950s by Ed Roseberry on the roof of a building that stood where the Water Street parking garage is today. The building was undergoing renovations or perhaps demolition at the time, Roseberry recalls, and there was a ladder up to the roof. Looking for a photo op, Ed climbed the ladder and saw these three boys up there. The posed for the picture and the photographer went on his way. Ed never got the kids’ names and to this day doesn’t know who they were. We are posting this photo to see if anyone can help us to identify the young men. They might be close to 70 today.  We have done a lot of work identifying people and places in many vintage images that come our way. This one has three recognizable faces and a known location to work with. Please feel free to contact us if you can help!
