Bowie Plaza, August, 1973

These pictures were taken during an emergency response to Bowie Plaza in August, 1973.

Golden Pavillion Restaurant, High's and Penn-Jersey Auto Stores. The sign on the store to the right of Penn-Jersey is probably "BIPPY." The following is how the City of Bowie describes BIPPY.

In 1971 a national movement was ...spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to help youth and their families find appropriate settings to come together to work on problems that had surfaced. At that time the Bowie Involvement Program for Parents and Youth (BIPPY), run by Carolyn Rogers, opened a drug and alcohol abuse program funded, in part, by a three year grant from the Department of Justice’s Law Enforcement Assistance Administration. This program was eventually housed within City Hall.

These pictures were posted as part of the Bowie Blade Pic Project, I've been posting pictures taken by Arnie Miles for the Bowie Blade between 1973 and 1975.
