Homecoming 1949 Bloomington High School

Bloomington High School homecoming, 1949.

Seen here are two photographs of Bloomington’s 1949 homecoming festivities. The photo on the left shows BHS homecoming queen Diane Taylor (center) with her attendants (right to left) Marilyn Koerner, Audrey Sullivan, Jo Linneman, and Marjorie Garber. The photo on the right shows the October 28 parade as the floats round Washington Street and head north onto the 200 block of North Main Street (the east side of the Courthouse Square). The BHS Purple Raiders defeated the Springfield Senators 31-12 (it was only one of two wins in a disappointing 2-7 campaign).
