|Clip from the Cranston High School, Yearbook, 1935 from Ancestry.com (p. 78)|
When I cleaned out the house my parents lived in for over fifty years, I had to make a lot of decisions on what to keep and what to toss. I threw out their high school yearbooks and I'm not sorry I did, it would be just another thing to have moved and worry about.
Ancestry just increased their yearbook collection and it includes my mother's yearbook. I made this quick clip before coming down with pneumonia.
I have learned from looking at the "biography" below her name that she did not belong to any clubs in the 9th grade. Before this time, she went to an elementary school called Norwood Ave. a location based (neighborhood based) situation. In those days buses were only for high school. She did tell me that high school started at 9th grade.
Soon I will have my 50th class reunion. Our yearbook is not so different from this one but my daughter's was quite different. (1935, 1965 and 1994)
Feeling sentimental this Sunday....
