Here is the second yearbook in the lot that I bought a week ago (here is the first). I actually enjoyed this one more than the 1951 yearbook. It appears that in 1952 they had a much larger budget, or perhaps just more creative yearbook staff. This one has more photos, a better layout, better design, and I love the sepia tone of the photographs in this one.

I just love the girls in the photo below, they all have such pristine hair and seem so proud. I can’t imagine an entire page of the current college yearbook has this much glamor and charm!

    Not a straight hair in sight for the ladies! Jackie Bobcock comes close with her super short hair but it still even looks like there are some curls at the sides.

    I love this so, so much! I am always on the lookout for old yearbooks at flea markets and antique malls but never seem to find them. Maybe because I always have a toddler in tow and I’m trying to cover the entire place quickly before I hear someone whine!

    Haha! I can relate. I usually leave Lucy home with dad on the weekends to do my hunting. On the rare occasion that she comes with me, I never come home with much.

    This past sunday there were two 1930′s-ish yearbooks at the swap meet and I’m still kicking myself for not buying them!

    Oh, I bet 30s yearbooks would be fun to look at. I hate that feeling of regret after leaving something behind, I am all too familiar with it. After all, I can only stuff so much vintage in my tiny house!
