Girl Scouts Birthday Gallery

The gallery of Life Magazine photos I linked to in the last post has some great photos, all from 1952. Here are a few more of my favorites:

Probably not an approved Girl Scout method of getting dishes down.

"I looked in the water and saw...myself!" The Brownie ceremony is still done the same way today.

A Brownie troop having snacks on an excursion. I want popcorn in a devilcat box!

OMG. That poor cat. How it is not freaking out I can't imagine.
There are tons more, including scenes you'd expect from 1950s scouts (camping, toasting marshmallows, friendship circles, cookie sales, lots of saddle shoes) and some you might not (martial arts, girls running for a train, and a Boy Scout/Girl Scout social). Worth checking out if you're interested in Scouts, or you just enjoy candid photos from long ago!  All taken in February 1952 by Edward Clark, © Time Inc.
