Dorchester's Axlines Celebrate 50th Anniversary
A lot was going on in 1964.
The Rolling Stones conducted their first tour as headline act.
President Lyndon B Johnson declared a "War on Poverty."
The Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand" hit No. 1 in the U.S.
The Warren Commission determined that "Oswald acted alone" in killing JFK.
Space probe Mariner IV flew by Mars, transmitting pictures of the planet's surface back to earth.
Indiana Governor Mathew Walsh tried to ban the song "Louie Louie" for obscenity.
And most importantly, Dorchester's Sharon and Harold Axline were married.
A loyal Times reader sent us this picture to let us know the Axlines will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend.
Tell them congratulations on this remarkable achievement!
