I don't have a precise date for these photos, but I'm sure they were taken in the mid-1950s. They show a dance recital presented by Maudie Baker's dance students in the old Knights of Columbus Hall on the 2nd floor of the Salvage building.
I recognize few people in these photos -- maybe someone can help with identifications. I am also surprised that adult women participated in the program. The only woman I definitely recognize is Lily Mae Hickey. I would never have thought she'd appear in public wearing a tutu.
