The Long Lost Yearbook Adventure

I found a 1946 Huntsville High School yearbook at a thrift store.  I thought it was so cool, I had to buy it.

There was a name and address written on the inside cover and I wondered if her house was still standing.  My friend (Malia) and I plugged the address into the GPS and headed to downtown Huntsville, Alabama.

We were able to find the address, but I wasn’t sure if it was the house where Sally lived.  I walked up to the front door and knocked.  The owner opened the door and looked at me with a stern expression.  I introduced myself, showed her the yearbook, and explained my mission.  I was wondering if she knew when the house was built.  The current home owner became interested in my quest and we had a great conversation.

After talking with her and her neighbor, it was confirmed that the house was built in the 1920s, so this is where Sally lived 73 years ago.

I spent the rest of the evening wondering about Sally.  What ever became of her?  I am sure she never dreamed some random person would find her yearbook at a thrift store in 2019 and start researching information about her life.

  1. That is so cool. I once found an old photo album in an abandoned prairie house. I was also curious about the people in the pictures too. By the fashions, I thought thet were from the early 1900s. I used it in a window display and a lady saw it and said it was her sister and her family in the pictures. I gave the album to her. There is a reason you found the year book.
