The picture below was taken in 1909. A Maypole Dance in front of The Dome - the old Sonora Grammar School that had just opened earlier that year.
And here is another darling image of a Maypole, on this May Day Dance page. It is from an old music book we used when we were little. All three of us took piano lessons for years. Cute!
My husband and his brother, and my father-in-law all went to this school ( the same one that is pictured above) - you can see why they call it The Dome:
It is still standing, thank goodness. It now houses the local Cosmetology School, among other things.
Happy May Day!
Do a little dance.....
