1942: ONCE UPON A TIME......

This delightful graphic is from my collection of Hamilton High memorabilia. In years long gone, it was the custom for a young lady to carry a dance card, wherein she entered the names of the lucky guys who would dance with her at the 1942 Senior Ball. This custom went out of style by the time I got to Hamilton High in 1951, but it sure was a quaint, and very charming custom!

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATION: The booklet and the accompanying pencil is seen against the second "layer" of the graphic. the page headed "Dance Order" is inside the little blue covered booklet.
