|Title:||Ticket Receipt; St. Joseph School|
Ticket stub: "Given Away - Tuesday, Nov. 27, 1962 - 366 AWARDS - $16,500.00 IN CASH." "Benefit of St. Joseph's School Fund, Bonneauville, PA . . ., " and others. Note $16,500 in 1962 equals about $107,000 in 2014. $1.00 tickets would now cost about $6.50 each.
$107.000 was a very substantial sum for small games of chance, at a time when Babyboomers filled the small town and well paying jobs were minimal.
