Photograph of children creating their own newspaper. Joan Sherry writes by hand with a pencil and paper while Jim Sherry and John Davis watch. Tony Bracket looks at a paper in one hand while typing with the other. They sit at a wooden table on sand, next to water. In the distance there is a sailboat. Beyond that is the mainland of Newport Beach.
Text from newspaper caption: According to these four youngsters, the Lido Lookout is the finest newspaper published on Lido Isle. The reason for this may be that it’s the island’s only news publication, but they take their task in no light-hearted manner. Left to right are, Jim Sherry, associate editor; Joan Sherry, society editor; John Davis, cartoonist, and Tony Brackett, editor-in-chief.
