So great! Thanks for getting this posted, Ed. Fine photo of you back in the day, and lovely to see a photo of Cal that captures his youthful energy so well.

80s Ed Murray looks like a cross between Tom Selleck and George Orwell.

Am I the only one who thinks Paul Constant kind of looks like Cal Anderson?

I've passed by the park a lot, but I never knew who Cal Anderson was until I looked him up right now. Damn, he died young. RIP.

Ed should grow the mustache back. Seriously.

That park had not been called Lincoln Park since the 1930's. I'm guessing the photo isn't that old.
The reservoir was Lincoln Reservoir, and the ballfield was Bobby Morris Playfield, but the park was simply known as Historic Lincoln Park once Lincoln Park in West Seattle was given the name.

Great picture of Cal and Ed. That was taken at the Pride Festival which used to be held on the Sunday before the Pride Parade to kick off Gay Pride Week. The location was the Bobby Morris Playfield which was dirt/cinder at the time. Your shoes came away covered in reddish dust after walking around the playfield. Was very thankful when they put down grass on that field the first time they redid the field.
