Derby Days-A Special One -1942

The day was the same month and day as this one in 2016, but there was a special buzz in the air for the one in 1942,  The ball would be dropped on the 18th, but the awarding of the winning prizes was to be held on the 19th, and they would be given out by none other than Wallace's own Lana Turner, who was coming to her hometown to promote defense bonds and stamps. It must have indeed been a red carpet day for our hometown.
