The Haverhill Echo archive photo mystery

editorial image

This photo found tucked away in the Echo archive was included in a batch dated July 22, 1999.

No information was written on the back so all that we know is what can been in the shot.

A group of children, some with name labels on their shirts and one wearing what looks like a patchwork quilt, are among a number of sacks, containing what we do not know.
