Counts at Lakeland Hall, Navahoe St

In the 1940s and 1950s much of the organized entertainment in Lakeland was provided by social clubs. The Duchesses and the Counts social clubs sponsored an annual formal dance at Lakeland Hall and sometimes posed for professional photographs. The Counts appear here in formal tails and white gloves.
