|The collage senior snapshot yearbook page of the Class of 1957|
As regular readers of this blog know, I love old photos. Last week I pulled out a couple of old yearbooks from my high school. I went to Downingtown High School in Downingtown, Pennsylvania from 1954 to 1959.
I was looking through the yearbooks, reliving old memories and looking for photos to scan into my computer when I came across quite a remarkable discovery. I found a photo of myself that I had never seen before in the DHS 1957 yearbook! How surprised was I when I saw that smiling photo of myself?!?
The photo was contained on one of the collage photo pages of snapshots of the seniors. Since I was a sophomore at that time, my photo should not have been on that page. The only thing I can figure is that I had a girl friend at that time who was a senior and she must have had that picture of me and submitted it to the yearbook editorial staff when they asked seniors to submit pictures of the collage page.

I think there was an inside joke because I was often teased about "all my girlfriends." HA! Yes, I had her (Vivian) as a girlfriend but back then I had the eye for the boys, believe me. I had many, many fantasies about some of the senior guys. Oh sure, I liked my "girlfriend" but back then you have to realize (The Fifties) that one was expected to have a girlfriend. I thought my "feelings" about some of those hot senior boys was just a phase that would pass. Right! I am still in that "phase."
So anyway, it was fun seeing this picture of myself even if it took me 53 years to discover it.

I wonder how many more Unknown Pictures of Ron are out there?
