Here are two "bobby soxers" from my generation. The uniform of the day for girls was dungarees rolled up to the upper calf, "saddle" shoes, black or brown and white, and of course the inevitable penny loafer. Here we see two of my classmates from Kuser Annex in 1947, Alvilda "Sissy" McGlynn, and Peggy Trolley practicing for their roles in the Spring Entertainment program for 1947, "China Boy." I was up for a part in that play, but rude and cruel Jean Larzalere told me I would have to give up my job working for the K users or forget about being in the play. I stayed with Fritz and Edna Kuser.
