Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, above, shows Sophy Wong, a Tracy High School senior, receiving the Ernest O. Lawrence Nobel Travel Award from Glenn T. Seaborg, Nobel Laureate and chairman of the Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley. The award allowed Wong to travel to the Nobel award ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden, in December 1994.

Wong later attended Brown University inProvidence, R.I.

Today’s mystery photo shows a gathering in front of a Tracy fire station in January 1983. What was the station and why were the people there?
