Here’s this week’s challenge, courtesy of the Wasco Historical Society. If you know the location, circumstances, exact or rough date and/or people in the photo, send your educated (or semieducated) guess to the Tribune, 455 Kern St., Suite E, Shafter, CA 93263, or e-mail it to [email protected]. Winners will be revealed here next week. LAST WEEK: The photo was of the 1932/33 Wasco High School basketball team with Coach Paul Wise. Wise began teaching at Wasco High in 1929 and he helped design the old Wasco High gym and basketball court that was torn down after the 1952 earthquake. In the 1930s, Wise was the only coach at the high school and coached every sport.
