Pals and Gals by Miss Joan Cayce

 

Peak into the life of Orlando’s It Girl with a look at Joan Cayce’s “pasteup book”, circa 1950s.

The parties, invites, photos and newsy clippings tell the story of an Orlando debutante enjoying the good life!

Edgewater High School football games, fetes at the Country Club of Orlando, and formal dances at the Coliseum kept a young girl very busy.

Of course, what everyone wants to know is who did she marry and where is she now? See happily ever after and hear the story firsthand.
