Where to get jpg of a March 1976 calendar?

I need to "date" a segment in a doc I recently shot. The interviewee talks about St. Patrick's Day 1976. I have been trying to locate a picture of a March 1976 calendar but have not found anything as yet. Any ideas on where to find something or how to show "St. Patrick's Day 1976" other than a lower thirds graphic? It will be in the voice-over but a calendar will add something visual.

Thanks
Lisa

The first was on a Monday. If you have a graphics program you can make your own--any way you want it to look!

If you have access to Microsoft Office you can use the 'go to date' function in the Outlook Calendar to display the basic calendar - then take a screen dump and photoshop it.

Hi,

That's what I planning to do if nothing esle was located. I used a program and changed the date. Then added the pan/zoom effect and it seems to work nicely.

Now to locate a photo or short clip of video showing Aberdeen, Maryland city limits sign. I contacted the Chamber of Commerce to see if they can help since I'm in FL.

Know anyone in Aberdeen?

Thank you,
Lisa

Hi,

the link below is from google images
Public Domain St. Patrick's Day 1976

if you can't find anything switch around

St. Patrick's Day 1976 Public Domain

make sure it's public domain.

Don't worry about size if too small.

Turn off the lights - shoot straight from laptop screen and you have full frame video or image.

Mike

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the tip but a few days ago I ended up making one with a program that I have and it come out ok. Actually, made two to pass by 2 years and added a few dissolves with the dates and pan and zoom effect.

Best Regards,
Lisa
