Yearbook Photos from the 1940s

Hello!  Waiting for the Big Snow coming this weekend–!!  We are
so overdue.

In the meantime, I’ll chat a minute about some old photos O’Half
bought at a local auction . . .

They are dated 1940 and center around a local school and many are
of the class play–wish I knew the title!  Maybe I can find it somehow.  But
I was most interested in the class photos–and the hairstyles and what they
wore—saddle shoes were popular–and plaids.  Hey! Plaids are back!

And then after choosing one photo to show you, I went rambling through
my own school’s old yearbooks and found a similar class photo—this one
from 1947.

They are fun to look at —even when you don’t know the people, you can
almost SEE people you know/knew.   Let your imagination roam with who
was who and what their stories might have been.
