Wordless Wednesday : Life With Louise* - The May Pole

*Mary Louise Vaughan Dallis kept several photo albums and scrapbooks.  They were filled with family pictures and scenes of life in LaGrange, Georgia, between 1900-1935.

I had always heard about having a May Pole Dance performed on May 1, but I had never seen one until I found these two pictures in one of Louise's photo albums.  My guess is that these pictures were taken at the school where Louise taught for many years.  Based on the clothes it looks as if the pictures were taken in the late 1920s.
