Vintage Photo from 1950s USO Parade

I spied this interesting photo i09.com. Back in the 1950s during a USO parade, they created a futuristic float to depict the USO entertaining troops on the moon. Huh.

So this is what living on the moon looks like, LOL. We will wear fishbowls and transparent trash bags!

Archivist Ryan Bean found this photo, and sums it up quite well:

It’s from the Charleston Armed Services YMCA, dated Oct 3rd, 1958. Apparently this was a float in a parade showing off a future USO on the moon. I especially like how she is wearing heels on the moon. Always gotta look your best, even on the moon!
