Readers I need your help. All the information we have on this one is “Students meet at Mitchell Park in 1916 for a dance festival.” I am guessing this is a maypole and they are celebrating May Day on May 1st.
I’ll see if the May 1, 1916 microfilm has anything about this on Friday afternoon and update the post if I find anything.
In the May 1, 1916 edition of the Daily Telegram in fine print of page 5 under the heading Upcoming Events
May 5, May Day festival by city schools, afternoon
I could not find any event coverage in the editions on the 5th or 6th. The Daily Telegram was a tabloid that prided itself on being a quick read. You can’t edit much tighter than that.
