The Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest archive offers several Purim-related images, with the note:

“Purim is a holiday celebrating the rescue of the Jews from extermination at the hands of Hayman (sic), the chief minister to the King of Persia. It is a day of put-ons, jokes, and theatricality, and children perform plays about how Esther and Mordechi (sic) outwit Hayman.

Finally, this is not Purim-related, but looks cheerful enough:
