Postcards from the past: West Seattle Hi-Yu, 1962

Richard S. Heyza / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Oink, a 350-pound singing pig, playfully pushed a baby carriage July 19, 1962, at the opening of the four-day 12th annual West Seattle Hi-Yu in West Seattle Stadium. Dave Callow, 4, was in the carriage. Sturdy, isn't it? Standing, from left: Tom Espinosa, 9; Lorraine Turrell, 7; Jackie Hermann, 4; Carrie Costello, 4; Chuck Herman, 6, and Patty Best, 7.

West Seattle Hi-Yu is a non-profit organization established in 1934.
