The crowd scene and "girls gone wild"


My mother and her siblings were all well behaved and good kids. They had such strict parents they all couldn't wait to be out on their own. So it was quite funny to come across this picture. Mom and her closest sibling (the 2 youngest) are peeking out in the background of a very rowdy scene,in old day standards. I am sure because there are a couple beers in the photo they are hiding. God forbid their parents caught a glimpse of this. Oh those girls gone wild!

My mother was raised by Dutch Reformed parents and really had a hard time, because she was naturally gregarious. I have some fun pictures of her surrounded by bunches of other young people and I am sure they were all having the time of their life. It was after WWII and everybody was happy and exuberant, especially the younger generation. It must have been great fun to have been young then.
