Congratulations to our History’s Mysteries Winner!
The Museums of Los Gatos has been participating weekly at the Los Gatos Jazz on the Plazz.
This week on August 15 we showed an image of unknown origins. Those who stopped by were asked to write down what they thought this image represented:
Here are some of those answers:
John L.: Pagent party time by the Secret society of elvish teachers in their cover.
Denise A.: Eleven bustled busty carpetbag-carrying women lining up to audition for the role of “cone-head” wife for a “Saturday Night Live” broadcast – and their chaperone!
Emily M.: A bunch of people were going to school and it was bird day so they brought bird cages on a rainy day so they brought umbrellas and had to wear funny hats.
Sally F.: The conehat trend made for a comical prom line-up.
