The USO entertains troops on the Moon

In the late 1950s, the USO put on a parade where they included this bizarre float depicting a future version of the USO on the Moon.

Ryan Bean, an archivist at the University of Minnesota Libraries, uncovered this gem and sent it to us. He says:

It's from the Charleston Armed Services YMCA, dated Oct 3rd, 1958. Apparently this was a float in a parade showing off a future USO on the moon. I especially like how she is wearing heels on the moon. Always gotta look your best, even on the moon!


Thanks, Ryan Bean!
