Top 10 Senior Portraits from the 1965 Hampton High School Yearbook

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 โ€“ 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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Bahahaha! Some of these are seriously passive aggressive. I think it might have been a case of revenge of the yearbook editor nerds.

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!
