Here it is—the pirate-themed University of Florida yearbook from 1929. It’s pretty spectacular. Let’s start with the cover.
Under-the-Sea: I love the sunken treasure chest, the seahorses, and all the embossing. Very exquisite!
Each section has its own illustrated title page, with pirates-a-plenty. Here are the title pages for each of the classes. Check out all those details in the borders!
A sampling of seniors. I love all the pirate-y details woven between the photos. I was a little disappointed the University of Florida was an all-dude school back then. Heh… check out that guy in the middle with the moustache! (click for larger photo)
Love this photo frame!
Even though this was an all-guy school, there is a section dedicated to beauty, and includes eight stunning full-page photos of young women. I’m not sure who these women are—girlfriends of some of the seniors, perhaps? That was Chas’ guess. Here are the best ones of the bunch:
Like I said, very lovely indeed!
