Vintage Photo Friday

"Clearing Out Locker", Birmingham H.S., 1957

It's that time of year....graduation time! Congratulations to all of the recent graduates. It's time to clear out your locker and make way for the new students.

The photo above is from the L.A. Public Library Archives. Taken in 1957 at the S.F. Valley's Birmingham High School for Hollywood Citizen News, Valley Times Collection. The caption reads, "Marilyn Gebhardt, 17, left, Birmingham senior class secretary, empties locker as one of the final chores prior to graduation. Janice Humphreys, 14, ninth grade student looks on."

Even though we're experiencing some June Gloom weather, I hope the sun shines on your graduation ceremonies! Have a wonderful weekend and a great summer!

Your blog is great. My Husband and I have been researching this history of Highland Park for years. I've started at the beginning of you blog. It is truly a wonderful experience to share in your love of Los Angeles.

On another note, is there a Stitch 'n Bitch Group that meets near Atwater.

Hi Juliette,
Thanks for the blog compliments!
Not sure about a SnB group near Atwater. You may want to check in with Julie at the Little Knittery on Glendale: http://www.thelittleknittery.com/
