Charles Phoenix’s Slide of the Week: Bon Voyage Party, Long Beach, CA 1955
A papered wall printed with Spanish moss hanging from tall trees separates tasteful titty-pink satin drapes. An itty-bitty day-glo airplane hangs above the four-flag centerpiece. The table is set with Franciscan’s apple pattern and fancy golden-rimmed glassware. Pickles and olives are waiting to be eaten.
These eight ladies are well dressed in smart solids, small-scale polka dots and plaids. Their spit curls and permanent waves make for delightful dos. They should start a club call the red lipstick club because they’re all wearing it.
These ladies were all teachers in the Long Beach High School system. Aren’t they handsome? I wonder if any of them ever married!
Here?s to the lovely ladies their trip and YOU!
