We were modeling clothing thought to be suitable for high school wear, in preparation for our annual style show for Home Economics classes. It is odd that we wore high heels for the photo shoot because we were not allowed to wear stilettoes at school.
The photo was taken at the old Scott's Drugstore in my home town of Charleston, WV. It is too bad that you cannot see more of the huge white marble soda fountain we were standing in front of; it was an icon in town for many years. The counter was backed by even more massive sections of white marble and a mirror at least 30 feet long. They had old-fashioned telephone booths, where you could make a call in private (don't you wish they would come back for cell-phone users?)
Scott's was the place to go for sodas, milkshakes and more. Marble tile floors, small bistro tables and wire chairs; cool in the summer, a quiet place to sit after a day of shopping, to meet your friends or neighbors, or scope out the newest sundaes and ice cream flavors.
I am second from the right.
