What were YOU doing on October 3, 1955?
That was the day the Mickey Mouse Club first premiered. It was also the day the Soviet battleship struck a World War II mine in the Baltic Sea.
But it’s very possible that YOU were having fun on the playground at Emerson School, 720 Cypress Avenue, Burbank on that very day!
Out of the blue, we were contacted by Abraham Raphael of thearchivist.com about a video he created for a Los Angeles family from home movies which contained images of children on the playground of Emerson School on October 3, 1955. Since many of the students in Burbank High School’s Class of 1968 attended Emerson School, it’s very possible that you may find yourself in the video!
I think I found Marilyn Kasper and Carole Aikin β tell us if you recognize more faces! Unfortunately I didn’t see myself in the video, but maybe you will! You’ll also see “The Bungalow,” a temporary classroom located on the edge of the playground.
