Young Couples at School Dances

There is something about a school dance - they want to take your picture. Still these portraits provide an opportunity to observe how the different generations looked at similar ages and in similar circumstances.

Some observations about these pictures: High school proms are more formal than college dances. Or perhaps the tuxedos were a 1980s thing. On the other hand, exposed shoulders and wrist corsages have survived the generations. Carl, lucky kid, inherited my ears.
