This past weekend I got to spend some time with one of my sweet friends, Ms. Ruth, who is 88 years old. I love getting to talk to her because she says the funniest things and is full of good ol’ fashioned Southern lady charm. While I was at her house, Ms. Ruth let me look at her yearbooks from high school and college ranging from 1939 to 1945. She went to a high school here in Tuscaloosa and then on to the University of Alabama (she was in the Million Dollar Band while she was there).
I’m a sucker for vintage yearbooks. It’s like looking at a time capsule of life in that year. Here are some photos from Ms. Ruth’s yearbooks:
It’s hard to believe that one day my high school yearbook will be “vintage”. I graduated in 2010 when feather hair extensions, vampire movies, and silly bandz were in their prime (shudder).
What year did you graduate, and what fads or trends show up in your yearbook that future generations might find humorous?
