1952

In this 1952 Labor Day photograph, “criminals” (from left to right) Dorothy “Sunny” Hailstone, Candy Hailstone, Don Hooker Hailstone, and J. Hooker Hailstone, peer at us from behind bars. They were convicted of a crime common in the town during Labor Day festivities. Anyone caught without a beard was put in jail and was not released until bail, a hefty one-dollar fine, was paid.
