COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

Voters on Instagram chose 1948 for this week's History Journal, so here's a photo from early July of that year. The photo was published on July 9.

This was the first "Apron Revue" for 4-H girls, which was held as part of the Allen County 4-H dress revue and demonstrations July 8 at the Hillcrest School. About 300 people including 150 contestants attended the final revue.
