This picture is from the 1961 Searcy AR yearbook. The girls had been posed in front of the Statue of Liberty all dressed up in their nice clothes. So many things are noticeable as always in groups of people. Note the dresses were all the same length, basically the same style (two girls appear to have on the same suit but perhaps different colors.) Not a pair of pants is seen but this was back when girls were not allowed to wear pants to school or to church. Hair styles are mostly short and curls are favored. Shoes are all the same style also except I see a girl on the second row wearing flats! Smart girl!
And the teacher, Mrs. Cecil Morgan, almost seems to be rolling her eyes in a bit of misery from tending to so many girls on a field trip.
