Morton's Umbrella Girls of Grand Saline 1975

This picture was printed in the Grand Saline Sun, Thursday, May 29, 1975. It was a special edition of the paper during the first Salt Festival that had been celebrated in quite a few years. There were lots of old Grand Saline pictures submitted to the paper for print in that edition. You will find them in this section. This picture is of six, eight year old girls, portraying Morton Salt Box Girls from the years 1921 through the present. They rode on the Athena Club float in the Salt Festival parade in 1975.
