40's style. Did kids have a fashion sense then? Mystery for Searcy Sleuths.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

The Searcy Sleuths love a challenge.  Therefore I'm giving them another one with these two pictures of a charming group of kids.

The boy has evidently found his own style.  One pant's leg is rolled higher than the other.  Speaking to the kid reveals that it was not a style.  So do you know why this was done?  My thinking is that cowboy boots were the style.  Every kid would have wanted a pair.  This little girl wore hers with lots of flair.  I don't know about you but personally I like that cap thrown way back rather than the way they are worn today so you can't see who is under the cap.

Don, all kids liked them then.  Am I accurate in saying that now BIG kids, girls, like to wear them?  You ought to see how many are in stock at Hayes's in Searcy.  My daughter, in fact, bought a pair.

Don, I figured you would find one.  Thanks for the effort but this one (l960) is NOT the one I remember.  This one's top is too high and other things "wrong"  (different).  Keep looking.  The boy I remember most wearing one was Billy Cook, Mary Beth's older brother.  He would have graduated in the late l940's.

"Red" Morgan wore one, too.  Barbara, you know Red. (James Morgan, Lawyer, Searcy).

Hey Barbra, How precious!  I love your look - I am especially fond of gingham - Is that a gingham dress?  It looks like you liked to take care of your little brother.  One never realizes when taking these simple pictures that they will be a piece of history.  Thanks for sharing...Got some more?

Anita, you are dreamin' again about those great old days when you were a "charmed kid."  Maybe Red still has his hat.

Debbie, that is not me.  I have a sister-in-law named Barbara so she is the lucky kid with the cowboy boots.  I do have more that I need to share.

Godmother,

I am in Oaxaca in a banyon tree. I had hoped to solve this but was too involved within myself.
