This photo was taken in 1955 in the Blue Room after the Holy Cross High School Junior prom. On the left are Bobbie Duplantis and Carolyn Pizanie, now Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Duplantis. They’ve been married for 51 years. The couple on the right were their guests at the prom, Barbara Alario and Andrew Dufrene. The photo is now a family heirloom.

The cost for the evening was $9 per person and included a club sandwich and a beverage. The photo was $5.

Bobbie and Carolyn recently had a drink at the Sazerac Bar to celebrate his 70th birthday.

    I have a great picture from 1959 but can’t seem to send it. It is a shot of Ruth Havard, Wimpy Wentworth, Leonore O’Malley, Charles Kelley, Paul O’Malley, Emily Kelley and the husband of the lady on the end. She is the mother of one of our friends.
