I'm Melting!

For all you Wizard of Oz fans out there, and no, I don't mean the James Franco version.

Winter is almost over.  We might get the occasional snow storm, but realistically, spring is in the air.  I started first grade in 1960, and it wasn't until I was in junior high that girls were allowed to wear pants to school, and that was only when the temperature went below freezing. Once the snow started melting, it was back into dresses and skirts.   It took a few more years after that before the dresses or skirts requirement for girls was finally dropped.  Half of the student body was not happy.  It looks like these photographs were taken sometime in the late forties through mid fifties. I'd bet that  the woman in these photos never got to wear pants to school.

  1. Wow! I started first grade in 1937 and we were allowed to wear jeans in junior high and high school (graduated in 1949) Must be different rules in different parts of the country. I'm in Kansas.
