What year was this taken?

Image (external): 

I just got a set of B&W negatives from eBay, and I roughly scanned this one,to see if anyone here can pinpoint what year it might have been taken? The negatives are 35mm in size, but the perforations do not fit the holder I have for my scanner, so I'm sending them out to be scanned. I'll put them up here when they come back.
