I’m not sure why, but when I saw this yearbook at a local thrift shop, it spoke to me. It said, “Hannah, buy me! Take me home. Read me! Oh, and then, if you don’t mind terribly, write a Top 10 about me. I think people would really enjoy that.” The yearbook had a point. So, yearbook, your wish is my command – I’ll leave my words here, and let you do the talking!

Would you like to see more excerpts from this yearbook? Let us know!

    @Amy — The captions are real. I couldn’t have made up captions that good if I wanted to!

    Ok I stumbled upon this site through craftgawker… and have to ask…

    is that the talbots as in… the Hampton Talbot’s of Hampton, PA (near pittsburgh)? Because I have a feeling I know some of those faces.

    Oh my gosh I just saw the title, this is entirely TOO bizarre!!!! I’ve seen this yearbook before – all of my dad’s side of my family went to this high school! And to think that I just came across this website through an ad on craftgawker… so strange.

    Chuck Betz was a TOTAL hottie.

    As a Hampton High School graduate (Class of ’01), I have to say that I love this post…but I am probably biased. :)

    This makes me so happy. Thanks for posting it ModCloth!! :)

    oh that Paul Murray, what a heartbreaker!

  13. Hilary 03/23/2010 at 6:28 pm #

    Oh wow. Those captions are amazing. I like Barb’s cramming style.

    @Erin, That’s a little freaky that it’s from your Dad’s school. Small world.

  14. q 03/23/2010 at 6:35 pm #

    wow the caption on #2 is kinda funny…

  15. Kit 03/23/2010 at 6:44 pm #

    More! I want to see the whole thing!!

  16. Natalie 03/23/2010 at 6:53 pm #

    Yesssss please. I wish my school yearbooks were half as fun!

  17. Love 03/23/2010 at 7:43 pm #

    More definitely! This completely makes up for the bore that my high school calls a yearbook!

  18. eliztesch 03/23/2010 at 9:12 pm #

    as a former yearbook nerd… i LOVE yearbooks and have also picked up a few stragglers from years past for my collection. this one is truly a gem!

    love the cover! very interested to see the homecoming queen, her court, & if there are any superlatives!

  19. Jill 03/23/2010 at 9:17 pm #

    at the museum i work at, we have some year books from the 1920s, and the captions (although in these, they’re more like little stories) underneath the graduates’ names are absolutely hilarious (especially since some sayings from the 1920s mean something completely different now!). and, they have stats for each person too! it’s a good pick me up for when you’re having a bad day!

  20. moony 03/23/2010 at 9:40 pm #

    oh wow, i would love to see more of this yearbook. (if only my old ones were so witty!)

  21. Alexandra 03/23/2010 at 10:25 pm #

    Bahahaha! Some of these are seriously passive aggressive. I think it might have been a case of revenge of the yearbook editor nerds.
    “This Irish ham delights in taking advantage of gullible people and maintaining an innocent expression throughout.”

    I wish that our yearbook did funny captions like that for each student, but sadly our class is too big for them to get to know everyone.

    I’m also rather glad those hairstyles have been phased out! :)

  23. chelsea 03/24/2010 at 7:42 am #

    haha, i love all the captions! i can’t believe they actually put all those…

    the hairs were great to look at too :]

  24. amy 03/24/2010 at 9:40 am #

    It doesn’t get much better than this.

  25. Bri 03/24/2010 at 10:39 am #

    I like #2. Im Irish and I love taking advantage of gullible people ;) and look innocent doing it….
    So I relate. haha. This list is awesome, I love year books.

  26. Enya 03/24/2010 at 2:53 pm #

    hahahaha! this is so much fun! I’m happy to know that Roseann’s hair style has been considered out of style. fun to look at thought! ;)
    I would love to see more of this year book!

  27. miss hiccup 03/24/2010 at 4:07 pm #

  35. Danielle 03/27/2010 at 5:09 pm #

    I love the captions. Why can’t my yearbooks be like that? You know, good.

  36. DCM 03/29/2010 at 4:21 pm #

    I have my parents year books to look through. ’54 and ’56.

  37. Ashley 03/30/2010 at 10:56 am #

    I wish my school would have done stuff like this. We were small enough (Only 4 seniors!) but my principal wasn’t that creative.

    I love looking at old photographs. It’s like knowing people from another time, I fell kinda like a time traveler or something.

    I have a book of Shakespearean songs, with an inscription from someone to a friend of theirs inviting them for Christmas net year. It was dated Christmas 1889! My own lil’ chunk of history!

  38. katie 05/07/2010 at 12:13 am #

    these are hilarious! i wish i was around back then just to have a caption like that of me!
