Freeland Chamber of Commerce Annual Fashion Show, 1950
Charlie Gallagher shared these photos and information about this odd event that was a combination fashion show and new appliances exposition. He wrote:
It was fall of 1950.
This picture has John Mulhearn
[CT: Charlie did not supply any text with this one, but it's
my favorite. The large and small stoves, the Coolerator refrigerators,
the "Syncro-Brain" TV, the radios (More Tubes, More Power!), and the
Betty Crocker endorsement with a very different picture of her than I
remember from my childhood because apparently she'd been updated by the
late 1950s. These must have been really wonderful events for the
community - AND a fashion show, too!]
I don't know who they are.
Maybe the Stuntz family ?
Maybe the Horn family ?
Thank you, Charlie, for sharing these fabulous photos with us
all. Think of all the work that went into staging this event every
fall! The pavilion has seen some amazing things over the years.
