This picture of a Eatonville High School dance was taken in the 1940s. Cool decorations — a glass of bubbly on the wall. Live four-piece band too with saxophone player.
The person marked “ME” is Arne Haynes. He was a senior in this picture and he graduated in 1942.
Reminds me a bit of the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance from Back to the Future. Just me?

A little confused about the top picture dated around 1959. It appears to be in the forties since the old chairs and railing are in the picture. The old chair seats were replaced with the fold out bench seats sometime before 1950 along with the railing being removed if my memory is correct. Great pictures!
Thanks. I didn’t have a date, but it was with pictures from 1959. I’ll make the correction. 😉

It would be great if someone from that era could put the actual date with the picture.
