I'll probably be 180 degrees off in my analysis but I'm going to take a stab anyway.

The narrow belt on the fellow with a bow tie, plus slacks with cuffs, and the calf-length dresses of the girls in the first photo dates this to about the middle 1950s.

It appears that both photos were made in the same room. The tops of the doors seem to have the same trim. And the floor has faint lines showing in both photos.

Whether the two photos were made at the same gathering is difficult to say.

Do you think it might have been at the Country Club?

Probably a good guess, David. I think there was a fireplace at one end of the room as in the first picture. Another possibility is Green's Grill. I agree with Bruce on the time frame. Don't recognize a soul.

My guess is 1947-48 at the country club. The boy dancing
with the girl in the plaid skirt & dark blouse is Buck Knotts.
The boy smiling over the girls head is J. S. Nolan.

Got no idea on when or where. There is only one face that looks even vaguely familiar, and that is the tall guy in the second photo in the very middle whose face is left profile. He looks like Richard 'Zeke' Zilonka to me, and he was HHS Class of '57.
In the same photo, the lady seated back left could be mistaken for librarian Margaret Hugelet, I think.

I concur with Malcolm, sure looks like Buck Knotts.

I found a 1950 Hamlet Nurses Annual and these two pictures were in it. The didn't have any information about them. So at least we have a year.

I sent the pic to Linda Knotts and she confirmed that the one couple is Buck and Bobbie Knotts. Several of the others look familiar. I'll have to get my mom to look when I get to NC next week.

Great Picture!!!!
I think those ceilings are awfully high for the Country Club. Also the club was built in the late 50's as I recall and the floors in the pictures look worn.
Wonder if it could be the Terminal Hotel??

The guy in the first frame (middle of pic), with the blonde, looks very similar to Robert Gibson who was proprietor of Gibson's Funeral Home which is now Harringtons.

The blonde he is dancing with, I was told was Bobbie Sue Ramsey who was married to Ed .
