The girl with the whole glob of straws in her mouth is Marilyn Kinney with her boy friend and later husband Glen Adams.
The other girl is Barbara Wright., but can't quite see enough of the guy to determine who it is.
Marilyn and Glen were in the Wy'east class of 1954 and Barbara was in the class of 1955.
Appears "old peddle pushers" were the dress of the day.

Double date at the malt shop!

Love these photos of the '50s! Have you run into any of Camp Yallani, the summer "home" of many Hood River Valley girls for a generation?

Wonder if "double dating" is as common today as it was in the 50's. And Susie, hopefully no photos of the boys who inevitably followed the girls to Camp Yallani.

I haven't seen any photos of Camp Yallani yet. Pass them along if you have them!

I believe Mr Unknown is really Lynn Gilkerson, class '55. Marilyn was also class of '55.

I agree with susie. I love these 1950's photos. A big switch from old photos where no one smiled.
This summer, the White Salmon Enterprise featured a 1969 Camp Yallani photo on their Facebook page. The kids mentioned in the photo were Klickitat County kids. I wonder if they ran separate camps for different areas?

My Mom kept books for Marilyn's father, Jim. He ran a woodyard and we bought our firewood from him in 1944--the year we lived in an apartment that only had a wood stove for cooking and heating.

And who would like me to post the names of the boys who wandered through what they thought were "rocks" in the meadow one night at Yallani, only to discover otherwise!!!!!!
I think that is Pop's Place. I don't recall wall paper at the Y Inn or that alcove type thing.......

Gail Gray (Parkdale) might be a good contact for Yallani photos.

Marilyn and Glen Adams....still a cute and lovely couple.

Good sleuthing all. Just received a call from Bobbi Jones with positive identification of the 'kids' in the booth at Pop's Place: Barbara Wright (AKA Bobbi Jones) and her future husband Lynn Gilkerson along with Marilyn Kinney and her future husband Glenn Adams.
