St. Patrick’s Day Square Dance - 1956


This home movie (silent) captures scenes of a St. Patrick’s Day square dance in Clarendon, Texas. in 1956. Numerous dances and couples are captured, as well as children taking the floor when the adults sit down for a break. There's a good shot of the caller (unidentified) at 5:54. Although it's difficult to identify whole sequences of figures, the film may be of interest to those following changes in square dance clothing over the decades.
