Funny Photographs From a Balloon Animal Party in 1948

Whenever you have a party or an event, you will probably have latex balloons to decorate the venue in order to create a more exciting environment.

Before they were used as party decorations, balloons were used in a number of different applications including transportation, military communications, scientific experiments and much more.

It was not until the 1930s when balloons began to be mass produced. This is when manufacturers started to create differently shaped types of balloons, as well as creating balloons that could have slogans printed on them. Thanks to this, balloons started to become used for advertising.

Also, it was in 1912 when the first sausage-shaped balloons were produced. It wasn’t until the late 1930s and early 1940s when people realized that they could twist these balloons to make animals and other fun shapes.
