The Summit School Flame Yearbook 1964. Woot!

I was in a teensy thrift store a while back…you know the ones that are run by really sweet little old ladies? I usually find that I will walk away with absolutely nothing, or something really awesome. There’s not much middle ground. This time I didn’t find much, but as I was making my out of the shop I spied a stack of old year books. This one in particular caught my eye. It was for an all girls school in Minnesota (yes I found it in California). I think these are so fun to look at. C’mon, lets take a peek!

The senior class had some really cool looking young ladies.

haha. i love that she is a “record, boy and clothing collector”!

Yes. Her nickname is SHOTSY. Love that!

Each section had a special hand pressed (hand colored?) page tipped in—so fun! And how cute is this:

But what about the staff?? I have to say that Headmistress Ethel Pease looks like a good ol gal!

But that Gertrude Kelsey? Shelooks like a tough old bird, eh?

I have several other yearbooks that I’ll be sharing with you guys—the co-ed ones are especially fun because they have great photos of DANCES! (And lets not forget the autographs….)

  1. The little thrift stores with lovely elderly ladies are my favourite! They often offer you a cup of tea and they’re always up for a lovely chat.

    That yearbook is a great find and wonderful look into 1964. There are some fabulous hairstyles and I particularly love Anne Sommers spectacles. 🙂

  2. And I thought Dottie was a great nickname. I bow to the awesomeness of Shotsy.

    I found a few of my old college yearbooks in a dumpster on campus and it was and IS still amazing! I’ll share it with you!

    1. Dottie still is an amazing nickname! Shotsy sounds a little dirty somehow….so wait are the yearbooks old yearbooks you found or they are your own yearbooks? Either would be fun!

  3. I love Anne Sommers glasses!
    I love looking through old books to get “ideas” of future names for children (if I have any more). Im obsessed with names.
    It would be neat to see where these ladies are now. What a fantastic tribute written out to Shotsy.
