If it seems that we have photos of everyone who was at Olde Salem Days on Saturday, well, maybe it only seems that way.
We don’t have THAT many photos — but do have a lot. And, as is our custom, we share them all online.
And that’s where we begin this week’s listing of online extras. The photo at left is by loyal reader Laura Tucker, who shares an online gallery. We also have our our gallery from the festival from Miranda Adkins and Eric Brady — plus paparazzi photos.
