This is neat-my Grandma was 16 in 1945.  On VJ Day she skipped school and took the train down to Times Square to celebrate.  This picture ended up being in the paper the next day.  You can see her in the space under the horn.

... and that's when the school found out why she wasn't there ...

Haha, that was kind of my grandma's original story, that her Mom saw the picture in the paper and that's how she found out her daughter was skipping. But she recently admitted her Mom knew all along where she was and she was embellishing to make a better story.
