Bowie Boys and Girls Club?

Wrestling match.

These two pictures were taken in front of Bowie High School. Annapolis Road (Route 450) is on the left, and St. Matthew's United Methodist Church can be see on the right. I assume construction was taking place for the bike/walking path.

The sailboat and trailer in the picture have stickers that say "Chrysler." The signs in the background say "EXTRA CARE IN ENGINEERING... IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!" That was part of a Chrysler advertising campaign in 1973. In the bottom right hand corner you can see what looks like a shiny new car. This is a Chrysler showroom, but I'm not sure why the picture was taken. Chrysler was in the boat business until the company dropped the product line as part of the 1980 bailout.

A combination square dance and craft show?

These pictures appear to show new equipment at the Bowie Wastewater Service and the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

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.
