A Bal Masque in Worcester, MA 1896

Ball ticket from the American Antiquarian Society

Don't you feel the need for a little Frohsinn? It means cheerfulness, glee, mirth, or gaiety. This costume ball was held in the late winter of 1896, in Worcester, Massachusetts. It was sponsored the Frohsinn Gesang Verein chorus, which had been founded in 1858. Grab your mask and tambourine, or put on your gaucho outfit with the spurs and silly pink hat and have a great time.
