Throwback Thursday -- unidentified photo, circa 1930s

Can you identify these Mount Prospect children? The photo log says: During the Depression, children created their own fun with games like red rover, crack the whip, hide and go seek, marbles and jump rope. In scouting organizations, Mount Prospect youngsters joined in parades, clean-up activities, and helped the Unemployment Committee and Women's Relief Corp. Let us know if you know these children.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Happy Veterans Day to all of the men and women of Mount Prospect who have served to protect and defend our country. We thank you all for your dedication and the sacrifices that you have made.
Veterans Day was established at the end of World War I, and it was originally called Armistice Day. Below are two photographs of the Mount Prospect Armistice Day Parade in 1918. Local businesses and organizations marched with banners and flags to honor those that fought in World War I.
In honor of Veterans Day and the 100th Anniversary of World War I, the Historical Society will be giving a lecture at the Mount Prospect Public Library about World War I and the home front in Mount Prospect. The lecture is Thursday, November 13 at 7 p.m.
