Title

Students at Perry Knitting Co. Open House

Description

According to the Rice Collection annotation, we're looking at "Children from school who had been invited to the Open House at the Perry Knitting Company in 1954." It appears that at least one of the adults listening may be a schoolteacher.

This isn't entirely accurate. The open house probably was held on May 27, 1953, and to call these young people "children" is a stretch. Given the company's desire to both inform the community about its manufacturing process and to "demonstrate the potential job opening sin this local industry,” these high schoolers (?) would have been very important to its future (Perry Herald 21 May 1953: 1).
