1956 Union College Yearbook Photos

A few weeks ago my lovely blog pal Hannah sent me a fantastic surprise in the mail—a 1962 North Hollywood High School yearbook and a 1956 Union College yearbook. I was touched and delighted and want to say a big ol’ thank you again to Hannah. She makes really amazing folklore-inspired clothing and accessories—go check out her goodies if you haven’t already!

First up for sharing highlights is the Union College yearbook. Enjoy!

Silver Spoons

“Charles Sims, Bill Harris, and Jane Camp look over Miss Hall’s collection of silver spoons.”

How fantastic is Jane Camp’s outfit? I love the belt and popped collar action she’s got going on!

Senior Students

The best part about this yearbook is that each senior student has a very posed and stylized photo of themselves in the senior class section. Ranging from hilarious, unnerving, and awesome, these photos are really fabulous. Here are my favorites.
