I bought a frame at an estate sale this weekend which I intend to use as a record album frame. These pictures came with it. They appear to be a tribute to a night (or rather several nights) of fun among friends in my hometown of Oakville, Missouri. I'm unsure of the year, but I would guess mid 60's.
Unfortunately, they cut the cover off of the program, so no details on the Western Opry.
The pictures were severely degraded from sunlight. I did my best to restore them with varying results.
These appear to have taken place in either a church or school gymnasium. That's a pretty impressive backdrop for a local production.
The above appears to be the only picture from the actual Opry. Others are clearly from other events, such as these from a Roaring 20's get together.
You'll notice where the oval matte laid.
The barbershop solo-ette there brought a big bottle of hooch.
Another impressive back drop.
I guess he figured a tuxedo was close enough, not really in the spirit though...
...like this quartet. If there was contest, I hope they won. The sun-bleached matte oval makes this one look like they're in a spotlight. Kind of a neat effect.
The sign in background may say "Opera Oakville Elementary" which would make sense and place these in a local school.
I would guess this was a Dogpatch party. That's a great stereo. I wish I'd found that at the estate sale. I'm willing to bet they brought those guns into the school. Different times.
And finally, ending with a chorus line.
